What would happen if
Mr. Wolf sued the three little pigs? This witty and well-paced novel brings
that story to life. This book is a great read for teenagers and adults alike.
It will grab you from the very beginning and you'll want to see who prevails in the epic legal battle of the animal kingdom. There are so many interesting characters that are brought to life and leap off the page, including the hard nosed Attorney Priggly, and the dapper and seasoned Counsel Boar, who battle each other in court for their respective clients.
It's wolves versus pigs. Pick your side and enjoy!
Everyone knows the
story of the "Three Little Pigs". I was super excited to read Mr.
Guillaume's version of this very likable story. Imagine, after all of these
years to finally hear the story from a different perspective. Who could have
imagined that there might be a different version of this story? Was the wolf to
blame, or perhaps the Three little pigs are to blame? With every turn of the
pages, I became more and more excited as to what was to come. Ms. Priggly was a
little bit too smug for my liking, but I guess, she feels that she has the case
in the bag. Who knows?? I think she gives great arguments, and the three little
pigs are very lucky to have her defending them. I felt that Counsel Boar did
not give his best while defending the wolf. I felt that he should have objected
a lot more, and called better witnesses to the stand. Perhaps he was like this,
because he was a pig himself. The judge, oh boy, I feel that he was not a good
judge at all. I think he unfairly denied Counsel Boar his objections. I think
the judge let Mr. Priglly get away with everything.
In all, it was a quick and easy read, and I highly recommend this book to everyone.
This book is appropriate for any age. It is a great introduction to the civil court system. It gives you a humourous and light easy introduction to the complicated world of litigation. Finally, a book that can make civics easy to learn about! You get to see examples of real court documents. Best of all Mr. Wolf gets his day in court and people and animals are listening!
