Ideal for young readers ages 5 to 8, Alaska’s Three Pigs is enhanced with Alaskan details that enhance the charm and novelty of this truly splendid picture book. Featuring the classic story of those irresistible little pigs–retold Alaskan-style, as the pigs camp, fish, ski, and build on the Last Frontier!

Dwyer hasn’t given up on her amazing compositions and this time she reveals a penchant for wicked visual puns!
