    1 thought on “The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot”

    1. Pro tip- you might just want to call the third little alien "keyboard smash." Keyboard smash is my kids' favorite of the aliens in this cute little story. It is one that my youngest demands over and over, so bring a glass of water to the bedside before settling in to read it.

    2. This was given to my 5YO as a gift, and he loves it. But I didn't like it the first couple times I read it. The Three Little Pigs is not the most engaging story to begin with, and ugly little aliens and space robots do not improve the telling -- not for a grown-up girl, anyway. I was tempted to laugh at the prank being played on me with the impossible name of "NKLXWCYZ," but it was annoying. But it grew on me. It started when I admitted to myself I liked reading the robot noises. You wouldn't th [...]

    3. I liked this "modern" approach to the 3 Little Pigs felt more accessible to today's child to me than the original. (I also liked the re-using of all the space "junk" out there!)

    4. The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad RobotWritten By Margaret McNamara Illustrated by Mark Fearing Inc 2011, 40 pages Genre: Children’s Literature, Fractured Fairytale, Grade Level Pre-K -3, GR Level: J, Lexile Level: ~300The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot is an adaptation of The Three Little Pigs. It tells the story of three little alien siblings, Bork, Gork, and Nklxwcyz whose mother tells them it is time for them to go off and find their own planet to call home. The three alie [...]

    5. This book reminded me of the three little pigs. Instead of three little pigs there a three little aliens that live in space and a big bad robot. The three little aliens leave home to be independent. Their mother told them to stay together, but the little aliens go on separate ways. The robot destroys the house of the first little alien, who went to the second little alien's home; which the bid bad alien destroyed as well as the first one. The tree little aliens go to the third's little aliens ho [...]

    6. 5 Stars (based on my grandson's response)My 3 year old grand son loves this story based on "The 3 little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf." He loves to imitate the sounds that the robot makes and cheers for the little aliens.

    7. Story: 5 starsIllustrations: 4 starsInterstellar rendition of The Three Little Pigs. Introduces readers to the planets and incorporates some facts about the solar system. Clever, entertaining, and educational.

    8. Three little aliens, Bork, Gork, and Nklxwcyz, set out to find planets of their own to call home. Bork spies a shiny rover on a dusty planet and claims the zippy machine as her new home. Gork chooses a planet circled by cool rings just right for surfing. Nklxwcyz travels on until he reaches a distant blue planet where he builds a home with sturdy walls. He lights it with stardust and finds solar panels to keep it warm. A telescope serves as a chimney. It’s not zippy or cool, Nklxwcyz thinks, b [...]

    9. Three little aliens leave home and go to find their own places in the galaxy. Their mother warns them to watch out for the Big Bad Robot, but two little aliens don't heed her advice. Instead of three little pigs and a wolf, this modern take on the classic Three Little Pigs uses three little aliens and a robot. A silly and fun version of a favorite fable. Good for little ones that like space themed books.

    10. I really liked this retelling of the Three Little Pigs and I love their goofy alien faces. It's a little longer and wordier book than I usually use in my preschool Storytime, but I'm looking forward to using it this week nonetheless. I found this author's note about Nklxwcyz's name to be very helpful if anyone else is stumped or disheartened by his consonant smush of a name. :)Margaret McNamara says:I'm the author of THE THREE LITTLE ALIENS and I wanted to add a note to [the] thoughtful comments [...]

    11. 5 stars based on the response of my story time crowd. The robot is scary enough that they love ite illustrations are so fun and reading it aloud makes this a great story time book if you do the robot noises. Highly recommend if you need a read aloud book for a class. A little long but kids love it so they actually sit through it.

    12. I really enjoyed this book. It is a play off from the 3 little pigs and follows the same story book. The twist on this book keeps it entertaining enough for the kids to be engaged throughout the whole book. This is one of my kids favorite books and they love to read it as often as we can. There are some challenging names in the book, but it doesn't change the story plot

    13. Author's note provides information on planetary depictions in the story and encourages readers to check NASA for more information. Alien house selections were adorable - many young readers will enjoy the Mars rover reference.

    14. Cute book! A lot like Three Little Pigs, but had cute, quirky differences that will make it a favorite for kids today 😊

    15. I was disappointed in this reimagined version of the Three Little Pigs. I didn't like the illustrations, especially the depiction of the aliens. I didn't connect with the story, but kids might.

    16. My son loved it and I thought it was really cute. I didn’t pick up on any great lessons it was trying to teach so I was just pure entertainment value. The illustrations were really cute.

    17. Enjoyed the retelling of this fairytale by turning it into a fractured fairy-tale. But I have one question, why is the robot chasing aliens all over the universe?Written by Margaret McNamara, illustrated by Mark Fearing and published by Schwartz & Wade Books.#robot #aliens #PB

    18. This book is like the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, except that there are little aliens in outer space.It's got fun illustrations and the aliens themselves are pretty funny - one goes surfing on Saturn's rings.The kids had some questions about the big bad robot - why is there a big bad robot just going around in outer space and why does he eat aliens? Since robots are not living beings it is an odd choice for replacing the wolf. Obviously it's fiction and you have to believe that littl [...]

    19. The three little aliens- Bork, Gork, and Nklxwcyz- have outgrown their home and Mama sends them off to stick together and find a new home of their own. Failing to follow her advice, the three little aliens take us on a tour of our galaxy as each one finds refuge on one of the eight planets. Soon after they have settled into their new homes, “Greep Boink Ork Meep,” the Big Bad Robot shows up ready to crack and smack and whack their houses down.The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot is [...]

    20. The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot is a hilarious picture book written by Margaret McNamara and illustrated by Mark Fearing. Based on a parody of the Three Little Pigs, this alien version is both contemporary and silly. The three little aliens, named Bork, Gork, and Nklxwcyz, have outgrown their current home. Because of this, Mama decides to send them off together in the search for a new home. Mama cautions them to stick together in order to avoid the Big Bad Robot. The audience can s [...]

    21. Category: Science Fiction/ Fractured Fairytale (This is one of two science fiction selections that I reviewed)Publication date: 2011Annotation is posted above via GoodReadsThemes: Technology, Fractured FairytaleWays to Use Book:* What a fun read aloud for a young audience, especially for students who may be interested in outer space! Afterwards, ask the students to create their own version of The Three Little Pigs in a completely different setting ("The Three Little Cowboys" perhaps?)* Talk with [...]

    22. McNamara, M. (2011) The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot. New York, NY: Schwartz and Wade Books.Mama alien, cautioning them to stick together to avoid the Big, Bad, Robot, sends her three little aliens out in the cosmos to find a new, spacious home. Instead, the three aliens choose to build three separate homes, ultimately battling with the Big, Bad Robot with expected consequences.I enjoyed this predictable take on the classic, Three Little Pigs; the luminous hand drawn, digital collag [...]

    23. When Mama Alien’s house was getting a bit crowded, and her three kids were getting a bit bigger, she decides it’s time for them to move out. She warns them to watch out for the BIG BAD ROBOT and to make sure they stay together. You can only guess what happens next in this re-telling of the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf”!I love the idea of this story because I really like The Three Little Pigs tale and I think this one is a much funnier version! I think it is real [...]

    24. The Three Little Aliens is a spinoff of The Three Little Pigs. The author, Margaret McNamara, takes a classic story and changes it for the next generation. Todays children read a lot of Sci-Fi or Fantasy books. The story was cliche. It was not original or special.The pictures on the other hand were captivating. Since the story takes place in space the background of each picture is black but the illustrator, Mark Fearing, add depth to it. There are purple swirls to add interest to the background. [...]

    25. Following the traditional "The Three Little Pigs" storyline, Mama sends her young ones, Bork, Gork, and Nklxwcyz, off to find their own planets when their home in a cozy crater on a tiny planet gets too crowded. Of course, she reminds them to watch out for the Big Bad Robot who wants to chew them up, always stick together, and to call her every once in a while.Bork and Gork are impatient and rush to make their choices. Bork chooses to live on a shiny space rover while Gork jumps on a passing sat [...]

    26. A sci-fi spin on the classic The Three Little Pigs tale. When three little aliens are getting to big and crowding their mother's house, she sends them out to find their own planet to live on, but she warns them-be careful for the Big Bad Robot and stick together! The three little aliens set out in search for their new planets. Bork decided to live on a space robot and Gork decided to live on a satellite, but Nklxwcyz decided to keep looking for a safe house. He went to a planet far out in the ga [...]

    27. This three little pigs adaptation is a sure-fire hit as a read-aloud. To get belly laughs usually reserved for the funniest comedians, just read the name of one of the siblings, Nklxwcyz. You'll have 'em rolling on the floor. Also great are the sound effects "GREEP BOINK MEEP!" During my story time the kids had so much fun guessing (correctly!) the various planets on which the aliens land. This book can be done so interactively. The kids loved reciting with me in a robotic voice, "Little alien! [...]

    28. I love clever or unique takes on traditional tales, so when I saw this twist on the Three Little Pigs I had to check it out. In this retelling, the three aliens leave their home on Mercury to find a new planet to inhabit. Each alien settles on a different planet, but of course the first two make poor choices and are nearly destroyed by the big bad robot. But fortunately, the third alien saves the day. I appreciated the similarities to the original tale and appreciated the inclusion of the entire [...]

    29. The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot is a spin-off story of the classic The Three Little Pigs. The three little aliens come together to gather around their new home when the big bad robot comes to destroy it all. The big bad robot then chases them around the universe creating a fun and familiar story for children to read. The illustrations capture the readers attention and make the story much more entertaining to read. Also it is a great way for children to be introduced to the planets [...]

    30. This book is a lot of fun. I read it with preschoolers but I think older (early elementary) kids would like it too. About a quarter of the way through one of the kids realized it was "just like the three little pigs" and got quite excited. From there on out there was a lot of guessing at what would happen next.The illustrations have some fun details, so we spent a lot of time just discussing what we saw. It was also a great chance to talk a bit about the solar system and some of the machines we [...]
