In this award-winning home-grown version of The Three Little Pigs, the villain is naturally a fox - the Appalachian Red Fox. Any local hunter will tell you the Appalachian Red Fox is a cunning predator. Davis' storytelling skills make full use of the story's inherent repetition, capturing the mountain rhythms, homestead setting, and rural wisdom of the Appalachians. Mazzucco's bright watercolors depict a fast-talking, clever fox who is part game-show host and part used-car salesman who hoodwinks the gullible pigs. Her vibrant illustrations capture the eastern mountain terrain that has shaped this unique version of a traditional tale.
