In stock

In this hilarious retelling of The Three Little Pigs, three tardigrades set out to find a home that's just right for them—all while watching out for the Hairy Wolf Spider.

Once upon a time there was a mother tardigrade and her three little tardigrades: Gavin . . . Colin . . . and Doug.

Gavin, Colin, and Doug live on a cozy little drop of H2O until one day, their mother tells them it’s time for them to leave home. In search for the perfect place to live, the three little tardigrades journey to an underwater ice cave, an erupting volcano, and even the moon! They can survive under extreme conditions, but can they avoid the Hairy Wolf Spider?

Humor and scientific information about these resilient microscopic creatures come together to remix a classic story–with an unexpected twist!
