The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot by Margaret McNamara and Mark Fearing


In this version of “The Three Little Pigs” the three little aliens set off from their home on Mercury to make their way in the “worlds”.  Their mother warns them to watch out for the Big, Bad Robot.  They pass by Venus and Earth and then Bork settles on Mars in a rover.  Gork and Nklxwcyz pass by Jupiter and then Gork settles on outside of Saturn on a satellite.  Nklxwcyz finally settles on Neptune.  Of course, the Big, Bad Robot comes after the three little aliens one by one but Nklxwcyz is prepared and they defeat the robot.

This was a very fun version of the “Three Little Pigs”.  I like how the author and illustrator incorporated planets in our solar system.
