A descendent of Mother Goose, Professor Marie Curious Goose takes on the task of fact checking the classic tale of the Three Little Pigs. With a little science, logic, and some cool fun facts, this book is sure to delight readers of all ages. Definitely a different take on a classic tale, but it's a great way to introduce younger readers to reality vs. fairy tale. The illustrations are fun as well and work together to present a very entertaining story! Huge thank you to LibraryThing and Tundra Books for this giveaway!… (lisätietoja)

This is a beautiful book with lovely illustrations. The premise is a cute one - taking an old fairy tale and applying science and common sense to debunk the silly actions of the characters. Small children will like looking at the book and hearing the fairy tale again and older children (5-6) may enjoy the explanations. Which relates to my only criticism. The book almost seems to have a split personality - it alternates between age levels for comprehension. But a good parent can probably work around that and fit the book to their child's age and comprehension. Overall I give the book a 4 on a 5 point scale.… (lisätietoja)

What a delightful second installment in the "Professor Goose Debunks Fairy Tales" series by Paulette Bourgeois; charmingly illustrated by Alex G. Griffiths. Following the imaginative premise introduced in the first book, this sequel blends humor, education, and a fresh perspective on the classic tale of the Three Little Pigs, turning it on its head through the investigative lens of the intrepid Professor Goose.

The narrative cleverly reimagines the well-known fable by introducing Professor Goose, a knowledgeable and slightly eccentric character who is determined to uncover the scientific inaccuracies and improbabilities within traditional fairy tales. As Professor Goose delves into the story of the Three Little Pigs, readers are invited on a journey that questions the structural integrity of houses made from straw, sticks, and bricks.

Paulette Bourgeois excels once again in crafting a story that is both educational and entertaining. The book skillfully introduces basic principles of architecture and engineering to children, encouraging them to question and explore the world around them through science. The text is accessible and engaging, perfectly pitched to capture the interest of young readers while providing them with valuable insights into problem-solving and critical thinking.

Alex G. Griffiths’ illustrations are a standout feature of the book. His vibrant and expressive artwork brings the story to life, adding layers of humor and charm that enhance the overall narrative. The illustrations not only complement the text but also expand on it, providing visual cues and details that encourage children to delve deeper into the story.

One of the most commendable aspects of the book is how it promotes scientific literacy among children. By debunking the fairy tale, Professor Goose encourages readers to think critically about what they read and hear. This approach not only makes the book a valuable educational tool but also ensures that it is a fun and interactive experience for young minds.

"Professor Goose Debunks the Three Little Pigs" is a splendid blend of education and entertainment, making it a perfect addition to the shelves of young readers who are curious about the world around them. It is also an excellent resource for parents and educators who wish to foster a love of science and critical thinking in children. With its engaging narrative and striking illustrations, this book is sure to be a hit among children and adults alike, eagerly awaiting more adventures from Professor Goose.
