The 3 Little Dassies

The 3 Little Dassies by Jan Brett
Illustrated by Jan Brett

     The 3 Little Dassies puts a new twist on The Three Little Pigs.  This time around we have three dassies, a type of African rodent that looks like a cross between a guinea pig and a koala.  The three sisters live in the Namib Desert in Namibia and with the help of a lizard, they try to avoid falling prey to an eagle.
     Kids and students will enjoy drawing comparisons between this version and the classic. The illustrations and side panels help narrate the story.
