The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka, explores the theme of lying and twisting the truth.


The story highlights the importance of intelligent and practical hard work in life, as it will definitely pay off in the coming years. The first two pigs were reluctant to do the hard work and chose an easy way to build their houses, and these houses couldn’t protect them in the face of danger.
