In this quirky, artsy retelling of "The Three Little Pigs," the pigs and their homes are nods to three famous architects—Frank Gehry, Phillip Johnson, and Frank Lloyd Wright—and their signature homes. Each house is filled with clever details, including furnishings by the architects and their contemporaries. Of course, not all the houses are going to protect the pigs from the wolf's huffing and puffing. Which one will? The wolf, and readers, are in for a clever surprise ending.
