The True Story of the Three Little Pigs

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

This is a version of the Three Little Pigs that shows the story from the wolf's point of view. In this story, the wolf is baking a cake for his grandmother but he does not have any sugar, so he decides to go visit the little pigs down the road to get some. As he comes up to the first house, the little pig was rude and would not give the wolf any sugar. The wolf had to sneeze and accidentally blew the pig's house down. The pig passed away and the wolf decided not to leave such a great snack just lying there so he ate the pig. He went to the second house and the same thing happened, the wolf sneezed and blew the house down, killing the pig. That poor pig was also eaten. The third house was made of bricks so the wolf was not able to accidentally blow the house down. The police came to arrest the wolf and put him in jail. 

I would use this story to help introduce the concept of different points of view.
