"An outstanding picture book has been made even better as it springs to life in DVD format." - Starred Review, School Library Journal "Paul Giamatti's voice lends the right tone to the sardonic take, and Chris Thomas King's lively score adds to the fun." - ALA Notable Video Committee "...well focused...great for the first grade and up...handsome animated adaptation...wonderfully narrated by Paul Giamatti, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! hilariously spends the traditional tale in a delightful blame-the-victim parody that will appeal to viewers of all ages." - ***1/2, Video Librarian "Giamatti's soft, slightly raspy voice is a perfect, satiric match for Lane Smith's stylized, hip illustrations...a full-bodied characterization of Alexander T. Wolf, making the case that he was framed." - Booklist
