    1. Just like The Three Pigs by David Wiesner, I enjoyed that the characters came out of the story and interacted away from the traditional tale. This one didn't quite do it for me like that one though. I thought it was cute and kids will enjoy it, but I felt the other was better executed. Read for grad school for my Lit & Resources for Children. Full review to come.

    2. Definitely a book for the older children. I do enjoy when the characters cross boundaries and speak, shall we say, out of context. I'll have to decide if I want to read this one of book talk it. But I think the kids will get the humor. I like the ending. Didn't like how the 3rd pig ended up being a bit annoying. Oh well.7/1/10 I used at the tail end of the school-age storytime when many had left but a few were still interested in one more story. I suppose it went well. But going from 30 to 4 mak [...]

    3. The title of the book on the front is big. There's a picture of three pigs on the front without a mouth. The one in the front has a paintbrush. On the back there's a picture of one pig on the back.This book is not the original story. Throughout the book there are interuptions. The illustrator has conversations with the pigs throughout the book.He even starts coloring the pigs different colors to try and help them hide from the wolf.

    4. My 7 yo daughter found this one at the library. I read it and loved it. It is hillarious. It's about the three little pigs, with a twist. This book is especially great for anyone who loves children's illustrations or has any aspirations of being a children's illustrator themselves. I loved the surprise ending, too. Worth putting on hold at your local library. I wouldn't mind owning a copy myself.

    5. The three little pigs are busy doing what the three little pigs always do their houses and the first little guy gets soaked with a tsunami of spilled juice which causes his straw abode to collapse right in front of him.oh my!! The big bad wolf enters the scene and gets his nose slammed into the door of the second little pig's house causing his nose to need some corrective surgery because oh my his nose shape has altered. Who is doing all these interventions into a perfectly happy and familiar s [...]

    6. "Wait! No, Paint!" is a post modern story of the three little pigs. It starts out with the three pigs building their houses when a mysterious voice spills orange juice all over the first little pigs house. Later in the story we discover that the voice is the illustrator. In the middle of the story the illustrator runs out of red paint and is not able to make the pigs pink anymore, so they experiment with lots of different colors. When the big bad wolf later comes to the brick house through the c [...]

    7. Wait! No Paint!is a retelling of the three little pigs-only the illustrator gets in the way. As the story goes on, the illustrator runs out of red paint, and so can't paint the pigs pink. To make matters worse, the wolf climbs into the chimney, and they can't create a proper fire because there is no red. The third little pig tells the illustrator he wants to be in another story, and so they find themselves as the three bears, and the wolf as goldilocks-a reversal from hunted to hunter.Its a cute [...]

    8. Checked this book out from the library and the kids really like it. It takes the tale of "The Three Little Pigs" and tells it with a very interesting twist. The illustrator of the story actually becomes one of the characters in the book. It looks at the role of the illustrator in creating a story in a very clever and fun way! I love the concept. We've talked lots about what an illustrator is, what they do, how they influence a story and picture book, etc. I like the book but I probably wouldn't [...]

    9. Silly story that depicts interaction between traditional fairy tale characters and the illustrator of the story. It's a fun, fast read, and we enjoyed reading this book together. This book was featured as one of the selections for the August 2015: Meta Fiction reads for the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at .

    10. Cute bit of fourth wall breaking, but nothing that hasn't been done before. The ending's adorable, but between it and the final panel we're left with more questions than answers.(view spoiler)[Additionally, I suspect there's some red left. The illustrator might have been mixing their own pink for the pigs from red, but there's other red-containing hues that were probably also made on the fly. (hide spoiler)]

    11. This book is just like the three little pigs. It is funny to read this because it talks about how the one pig looked like a clown and the pig told the illustrator he did not want to look like that. I really like how the pigs talk to the illustrator throughout the story. The background of the pictures is just all white. It does not have that much color to the book. The only color to it is the pigs and the wolf.

    12. Quite by accident I picked up another 3 little Pigs story with a difference. This one is different again. In this tale, the illustrator is narrating the story. There is a great twist at the end and the wolf looks really silly, which really appealed to Matthew. The illustrations must have been a lot of fun to work on. The voice was fresh and lively. You could imagine peering at the book through a window almost.

    13. The three little pigs set out to build their homes, but soon after the first and second little pigs lose their homes and join their third brother, something horrible happens: the illustrator runs out of pink paint! How can you paint three cute pink pigs without pink paint!I thought this was a cute take on the three pigs story, and I loved the way the different colors that the illustrator used in place of pink effected the way the pigs felt!

    14. I really liked this book. Its a funny version of the three little pigs, but the illustrator runs out of red paint to make the pigs pink. But the wolf is still after them. This is a great story to read to younger students to explain what an illustrator does as well as a Narrator. Also this book would be a great book to do with a storybasket.

    15. It’s a bad day for the Three Little Pigs. Full of slapstick silliness and colourful character/illustrator interactions, this twist on the traditional tale tickles our two.Listen to our chat about this book on our JustOneMoreBook Children's Book Podcast:justonemorebook/2006/1

    16. I loved this book!! It actually had me laughing out loud. It starts out as the traditional story of the three little pigs, but then goes in a different direction. The illistrator writes himself into the book, then precedes to use his power as the illistrator for his own amusement. This book would be a great read for any classroom.

    17. This is truly my favorite book. It is fantastic. It has been that way since I was in preschool. I love the fact that the illistrator is a character and the fact the he runs out of pink paint. When I was in third grade, I read this to my class and we still all laughed. I still laugh at it. Highly reccommend for ANY age.

    18. I thought the beginning of this book was mildly clever. Then it started to get cleverly mysterious and then completely hilarious! I laughed at loud on several pages. Elizabeth was giggling right along with me. William looked to see what all the fuss was abouthe didn't get it. I recommend this book for minute or two of smiles.

    19. This book made me laugh so hard! It reminds me of The Stinky Cheese Man and other fractured fairy tales. I would use this book with older kids during lessons on creative writing and then let them choose a well known fairy tale to rewrite or change. I would also use it during discussions on the purpose of different types of writing and creating the tone of a piece of writing.

    20. extremely clever retelling of the three little pigs story in which orange juice is spilled upon the characters, they are turned green due to a lack of red paint and other foibles befall them. fun. may be too detailed for crowd use.

    21. Wait! No Paint! takes a comical spin on the story of The Three Little Pigs. The illustrator happens to be painting the pictures as the story goes. The dialogue between the characters in the book and the illustrator is very funny!

    22. This is a different twist on the traditional Three Little Pigs story. It is a great book to introduce the word illustrator to children, since the illustrator changes things up by deleting some things, adding others and even spilling orange juice.

    23. I love a retelling that changes things up and surprises me. This is such a great book. Full review on my blog. buildinglifelongreaderssp

    24. Fun, creative version of the Three Little Pigs in which mid way through the story, the illustrator runs out of red paint and can't paint the pigs pink. Problems and hilarity ensue. My children and I thought this story was clever and entertaining.

    25. A retelling of the three pigs and wolf story but with the pigs interacting with the illustrator when the red paint ran out. It is more suitable for older kids who can understand the interaction part. Nonetheless, the last page is very funny.

    26. In a sea of disappointingly unoriginal or dumb children's stories, this is a surprisingly good and cute take on an old storyBorrowed this from the library for my daughters and immediately ordered it after the first reading to ensure it is a part of their collection.

    27. Age: Kindergarten-2nd gradeFairytale: fractured 3 Little PigsA humorous meta tale about the 3 Little Pigs and the lack of pink paint. The gradual introduction of the illustrator is very well played and very intriguing--perfect for Kindergarten-2nd grade.

    28. This book is based off the the story of The Three Little Pigs. I thought the idea of the illustrator interfering with the story was clever. I did think that it was a little boring though as it did not capture me or engage me in the story.
