Huff and Puff by Claudia Rueda ADVISABLE

Rueda, Claudia Huff and Puff, 32 pgs. Harry A. Abrams Publishing, March 2012. Content - G.

The cover asks the question, "Can you blow down the houses of the three little pigs?" Inside is a simplified version of The Three Little Pigs, with the reader as the wolf. Down comes the straw house, down comes the stick house, but no matter how hard the "wolf" tries, the brick house stays up. But the "wolf" does manage to blow out the candles on a cake. For which all four characters are happy as they share dessert.

There are very few words, only one sentence on each spread. The illustrations are simple and uncluttered; very cute. I love the expressions on the piggies faces. I'm a fan. This would be a great read-a-loud book for younger audiences.
