Three Little Javelinas

By Susan Lowell (Hardcover)

Winner of Arizona Young Readers award, Reading Rainbow book. This clever and flavorful change of scene puts a diverting spin on an old favorite...sprightly fun.

Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs, but now you're going to meet the three little javelinas (pronounced ha-ve-LEE-nas)-- loveable, wild, southwestern cousins of pigs. Living in homes built out of tumbleweeds and saguaro ribs. (from the fallen giant cacti), the first two javelinas are soon running from the hungry coyote, who had hoped to eat them with red chile sauce. And where do they go for shelter? Why, to their wise sister's house, made strong with adobe bricks.

This clever and humorous tale is sure to delight children of all ages, especially those familiar with the Southwest. Dressed in cowboy duds and prepared for life in the rugged desert, these characters are more than any coyote bargained for.
