The Three Little Figs: A Fruity Tale of Mischief and Trickery offers a refreshing look at the classic tale, The Three Little Pigs. Filled with new rhymes and characters, this interactive story stars three little figs and a very mischievous gopher. Instead of â€˜huffing and puffing,â€™ the Gopher uses wit to lure the figs out of their house. But one of the figs is one step ahead of the gopher! See what happens in this hilarious remake of a classic childrenâ€™s tale. The story was written by David Hollaway and illustrated by Eric Weldon. BEWARE OF THE MISCHIEVOUS GOPHER! â€œFig Number One, Fig Number One, can we please have some fun? Surely a gopher with eyes this bright and teeth this white, could only be a magnificent delight, â€ the Gopher said. "But the vegetables are having a party and have asked that you come, my old chum! Tomatoes, Potatoes, Carrots, and Beets will all be dancing in the streets," the Gopher said. FEATURES * Read - Has animated characters for greater interactivity.
