Little Pig Paradise is an harmonious, orderly kingdom of one hundred pigs, full of industry, happiness, and family feeling. One day, a group of one hundred starving wolves approaches their borders. At first, they eye the pigs hungrily; yet eventually, they remember what happens to wolves in stories who try to eat pigs. Resolved to act differently, they approach the residents of Little Pig Paradise with an idea for another kind of feast entirely.
Wolves and pigs–what more do you need? Tsai Shing-Jane takes an old fairy tale and turns it on its head in just six pages, replete with Huang Chih-Ming’s hilarious depictions of two hundred utterly individual pigs and wolves, each with his or her own face, form, and story. As with all good children’s literature, this title invokes a world of imagined possibilities with only a few pages of text and illustration.
