Pixel Mouse House has just released a new eBook called The Four Little Pigs.  Yes, that’s right – four little pigs!  Written and illustrated by Jose Maria Cardona and edited by Ted Enik, this story opens up wth three slim, springy and fast brothers jumping around. Their youngest brother is a roly-poly, pudgy fellow who has a hard time keeping up with his siblings.  For example, when he tries to cross over the wood footbridge, it isn’t strong enough to hold him up so plop he goes into the river for a surprise cold bath.  He also has a hard time jumping up high to bouncve the ball on his head like his brothers can do so easily.

The illustrations are fun and Jose Maria Cardona does a good job at showing the different emotions the brothers are feeling.  You can just image how they feel when a mean, lean and hungry-lookiing wolf shows up in their yard.  The four little pigs stop what they are doing and rush to get inside the safety fo their house.  But the pudgy brother is stuck in the doorway!  They all work together and push and pull to get him into their cottage house. 

The wolf announces that he has yet to find a door that can keep him out so he starts pushing and pushing against the door – with no success!  For you see, the pudgy brother is on the other side pressing as hard as he can to stop the wolf from coming in and uses “every ounce and pound of his strength.”  The lean, mean and angry wolf tries and tries to push the door down, but it won’t budge so he goes on his way. 

The Four Little Pigs story is a great reminder for kids that people are all different and come in many shapes and sizes.  And that every person has something special or unique about them.
