Event Preview: The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf with Mark Teague

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, May 6th, 2013, at St. Louis County Library--Headquarters when picture book author and illustrator Mark Teague will offer a drawing demonstration as he reads and discusses his new book, The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf.

When the farmer and his wife move to Florida, his three pigs are paid for their work and sent on their way.  What better to spend their new-found wealth on than potato chips and sody-pop?  Well, the third pigs thinks building supplies might be the way to go.  And when a hungry wolf arrives on the scene, it turns out she might be right.  This modern retelling of The Three Little Pigs turns the tale on its head with good humor and good lessons.

  1. Hi, can i ask you something? You seem to know a lot about children books and illustrations. The thing is, I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like the big bad wolf (or a fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Could be any other animal as well. I need it for my research. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
