A story within a story is relayed in words and pictures when a little pig gives an account for her family of all the things that happened to her when she boarded the wrong bus for school: she took a shortcut through the forest ("How many times have we told you: never go into the forest alone!") and was snapped up by a hungry wolf who planned to cook her in a soup till the little pig outwitted him with a recipe for disaster. Wry details abound in both the pig's clever story and her family's responses to it throughout. (Ages 3-7)
