The Pig Who Went Home on Sunday: An Appalachian Folktale

by Donald Davis
In this award-winning home-grown version of “The Three Little Pigs,” the villain is, naturally, a fox—the Appalachian red fox, who any local hunter will tell you is a worthy and cunning opponent. Davis”s storytelling skills make full use of the tale”s inherent repetition, capturing the mountain rhythms, homestead setting, and rural wisdom of the Appalachians. The bright watercolors depict a clever fox and capture the eastern mountain terrain that has shaped this unique version of a well-known tale.
