I'd like to introduce the idea of perspective to sixth graders prior to reading Nothing But the Truth by Avi. I am planning to read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs to start but I can't find other titles. Any suggestions?

I was going to suggest "Snow,
Glass, Apples" by Neil Gaiman; but then I realized that
you said "sixth graders" and I don't think I'd recommend
that story to anyone below fifteen.
Er... the only other thing I can think of at the moment is Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, and that may not be appropriate either.
