Imagine if the three little pigs were three little rigs and their momma rig sent them out into the world to find their fortune. And what if the bady was the big bad wrecking ball! A rolicking good read with a surprise ending that is sure to keep you laughing by the chrome of your chinny chin chin!

This retelling of the classic fairy tale has three little rigs sent out into the world by their mother, to construct their own garages. The first uses wood, the second bricks, and the third steel... and all is well until the Big Bad Wrecking Ball arrives on the scene. Author David Gordon has created another winner, beautifully illustrated, to follow up THE UGLY TRUCKLING.
