Everyone who's anyone will be at the Three Little Pigs' housewarming party. Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood have already marked it on their calendars.
Unfortunately, so have the wolves -- those who've caused the Pigs to build their brick house in the first place!
In this wonderfully creative sequel to Dear Peter Rabbit, Alma Flor Ada imagines what it would be like if a few beloved fairy-tale characters were pen pals. Leslie Tryon's intricate and colorful illustrations make the unique epistolary format fun for young readers.
