This illustrated children’s book is a unique variation of the classic children’s fairy tale of the 3 Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf.

Sisters Lucette, Paulette and Marie-Antoinette are three strong-spirited little piglets. One scary night their culottes are stolen so they go in search of the thief. Will the three little pigs find their culottes? And in doing so, will they find the thief?

This story has been faithfully adapted into English by Joanne Horsburgh and Michael Sedunary, successfully maintaining the story’s offbeat spirit and retaining the medium of rhyme to narrate the story. Anne Letuffe’s rich collage of illustrations uses materials such as fabric, wool, fruit, plants, stones and utensils. Letuffe beautifully illustrates this delightful story that reveals new details on each reading.
