Have you ever read “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” by Jon Scieszka? It is the story of the 3 little pigs
told from the point of view of the big bad wolf. Point of view means the perspective of the person (narrator)
who is telling the story. There are other stories told from surprising points of view including “The Day the
Crayons Quit” told from the crayon’s point of view, and “The Giving Tree” told from the tree’s point of view.

told by the giant, Goldilocks told by one of the three bears… the possibilities are endless!
