Illustration by David Gordon

"Little rig, little rig, let me come in. Not by the chrome on my chinny chin chin. Then I'll crash and I'll bash and I'll smash your house in."

When the three little rigs set out to build their own garages, each one thinks that his is going to be the strongest. But then the big bad wrecking ball comes to call and threatens to smash their new homes to smithereens. The brothers learn that it's only by bravery and teamwork that they can win the day.

"Little rig, little rig, let me come in. Not by the chrome on my chinny chin chin. Then I'll crash and I'll bash and I'll smash your house in."

When the three little rigs set out to build their own garages, each one thinks that his is going to be the strongest. But then the big bad wrecking ball comes to call and threatens to smash their new homes to smithereens. The brothers learn that it's only by bravery and teamwork that they can win the day.

With The Three Little Rigs, David Gordon puts a mechanical spin on the old story of the three little pigs. The book cleverly reworks the story and shows what goes in to creating a building. In this case, the big, bad wrecking ball is the villain and the source of all of the trouble, and the charmingly illustrated three little rigs are the heroes.

This story will appeal to your little one because they will make the plot connections with the little pigs story. As your child recognizes this, he or she will begin to ask questions and become more curious about the story. The snappy dialogue and the message of friendship will engage them in the plot.

My niece Emily really loves this book, especially since the drawings of the rigs include smiling faces. This was one of our favorites to read together, and she would always go back and pick it out at reading time. She can now read some of the text on her own. It is so exciting to see her challenge herself to read this old favorite to me, and she is very proud that she can read it by herself.

My sons love everything related to trucks and construction, so site description and reviews made this book sound very appealing even though I hadn't heard of it before. The book puts a spin on the classic tale of the The Three Little Pigs! The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the expressions on the faces of the little rigs through the story is priceless!
 
We've had this book for about two weeks now and have read it at least three times a day if not more, so it's definitely moved to the top of favorites list! If you have boys, I definitely recommend this book! It's an easy read for parents with great rhymes and repitition and children really enjoy it, but be prepared for comments similar to, "why would a wrecking ball want to tear down somebody's house, that's not very nice!" (or maybe that's just my 4-year old who is worried about the feelings of everyone around him!)
