About the Book

You’ve probably read the children’s classic The Three Little Pigs. Or maybe you have had it read to you before you learned to read. Now there is a new take on this beloved story.


In her book, Straw, Sticks, or Bricks? Three Pigs Choose, author Sara S. Odom uses rhythm and rhyme to capture the imaginations of young, old, and beginning readers. When their mother tells pigs Tig, Lig, and Zig to build their own homes, they each go out on a quest to find the building material that best suits their desires. Children will enjoy the personalities of Tig, Lig, and Zig Pig as they try to escape the paws of Zany Wolf, the hideous and frightful wolf.


Fairy tales always have lessons to teach, and Straw, Sticks, or Bricks? Three Pigs Choose is no exception. Ultimately, Tig and Lig learn the importance of hard work and doing what is right.
