Born With Teeth by Kate Mulgrew

by Kate Mulgrew

We know Kate Mulgrew for the strong women she's played--Captain Janeway on Star Trek; the tough-as-nails "Red" on Orange is the New Black. Now, we meet the most inspiring and memorable character of all: herself. By turns irreverent and soulful, laugh-out-loud funny and heart-piercingly sad, BORN WITH TEETH is the breathtaking memoir of a woman who dares to live life to the fullest, on her own terms. --Amazon

by Steve Smallman 

The story follows the classic tale, except that all the wolf wants from the pigs is a tissue to blow his nose. Denied entrance when he knocks, he sneezes and accidentally blows down the straw and stick houses. The brick house does not fall down, the pigs put a huge pot of water on the fire, and the wolf comes down the chimney too soon for the water to be boiling.
