Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith teamed up in 1989 to create 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' in which Alexander T. Wolf tells his side of the Three Little Pigs story. This book helped spawn a genre of children's literature called 'Fractured Fairy Tales'. Actually, 'Fractured Fairy Tales' was a segue of the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.
