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.

Steven Guarnaccia is chair of the illustration department at Parsons the New School for Design. He is the author of several books for children and adults, including Goldilocks and The Three Bears: A Tale Moderne. He lives in Montclair, New Jersey.From Booklist:
As in Goldilocks and the Three Bears: A Tale Moderne (2000), Guarnaccia combines a delightfully fractured fairy tale with an ultrastylish, kid-friendly primer of twentieth-century design. Here, each of the three little pigs is a porcine doppelgänger for a world-famous architect: Frank Gehry (who lives in a house of scraps), Philip Johnson (whose house is glass), and Frank Lloyd Wright, whose sturdy, brick Fallingwater becomes the pigs' refuge from the wolf. The story works without the sophisticated references, but the endpapers, printed with design icons featured on the pages, provide a fun, interactive game and will pique kids' interest in the subject. Grades K-3. --Gillian Engberg
