The 3 Little Dassies

Submitted by Ms. Allana!
The 3 Little Dassies by Jan Brett is a twist on the classic tale of the three little pigs. No surprise at the wonderful illustrations of Brett, as the story, which takes place in Namibia, portrays the adventures of three Dassies who have grown old enough to set forth and fend for themselves. Under the watchful eye of a guardian Agama Man, they travel up a mountain and try to settle into homes where they will each be safe from the hungry old eagle. “I’ll flap and I’ll clap and I’ll blow your house in” he rants and beats his wings. The eagle may displace a Dassie from the grass house, and from the house made of twigs, but what will happen when he tries to destroy the house of stone? See this book listed in our catalog
