HERMAN, THE FOURTH LITTLE PIG tells the tale of the previously unknown 4th Little Pig. Herman escapes the Big Bad Wolf and runs to the coast, where he takes a sailboat to a tropical island. He first builds a small shelter out of palm tree leaves, but it gets destroyed by a storm. He then builds one from bamboo, but it also gets destroyed by a storm. Finally he discovers a cave on the island, and survives the biggest storm yet. A new spin on a classic tale of trial and error.
Praise for Herman, The Fourth Little Pig
“Out of the frying pan and into the fire! In this new take on the beloved children’s classic, Herman learns the hard life lesson that running away from a problem never really works. Although he succeeds in escaping his brothers’ wolf drama, he quickly realizes that even desert islands come with issues. This entertaining tale teaches readers that no problem is insurmountable with perseverance… and a little coffee.” – Marissa Moore, Elementary School Librarian
