Tell the Truth, B.B. Wolf

Judy Sierra, illus. by J. Otto Siebold, Knopf, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-375-85620-4

Tracksuit-wearing B.B. Wolf makes a return to a trip to the library in this companion to Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf, this time to relate a story from his bad old days—that of the three little pigs. Embarrassed about his past actions, he engages in some revisionist history ("I followed my nose and found another little piggie playing with matches next to a pile of sticks. The sticks were on fire, so I blew on them... to put out the flames, you understand"), causing the fairy tale characters in attendance to insist he come clean. As delightfully twisted as its predecessor. Ages 5–8. (Aug.)
