"It was the same old story." Or was it? Sure, big, bad Mr. Wolf is as hungry as ever, but when he sees Preston Pig dressed in a red riding hood outfit and carrying a basket of food to Granny's house, Mr. Wolf isn't quite sure what story he is in. It can't be The Three Little Pigs. There isn't a red hood or a Granny's house in The Three Little Pigs, and besides Mr. Wolf hasn't had to blow anybody's house down. Despite his confusion, Mr. Wolf pursues Preston into the woods, but each of his "Cunning Wolf Tricks" fails to stop the little pig from eventually arriving safely at Granny's house. Preston finds Granny Pig in bed and points out what big eyes and big, floppy ears she has. Mr. Wolf watches from a nearby window and suddenly remembers the story of Little Red Riding Hood — just as he hears Granny speaking his lines! He jumps into the room and ties the pigs up, when in walks Preston's dad with an axe in his hand. And only then does Mr. Wolf remember what happens at the end of Little Red Riding Hood…Oops! With its hilarious cartoon illustrations, Colin McNaughton's book is as much about the art of story telling as it is about Mr. Wolf's pursuit of Preston Pig. Young readers will enjoy the way the story pokes fun at familiar characters and events even as it presents them in a completely original way. "Same old story," with a twist.
