The Three Little Pigs
Once upon a time there were three very nice little pigs, who loved to play in the meadows with other pigs. One day, they decided to each build their own house to protect them from the rain, cold and all the dangerous things that lurked there, especially the Big Bad Wolf who everyone said wanted to eat all of the little pigs.
Fifer Pig, who was the youngest of the three, made his house out of straw so he could finish quickly and go off to play with the rest of the pigs, which was what he liked to do most since he was very playful.
Fiddler Pig, who was the middle brother, decided to build his house out of wood because he knew if he made his house like his younger brother, Fifer, the wind or the rain could knock down the house. Even so, he built his house very fast so he could meet up with the rest of the pigs and have fun.
Unlike his two brothers, Practical Pig, the oldest of the three, wanted to build a house that would stand up to anything and everything. Then he wouldn’t have to worry about it when he was outside, nor when he was inside sleeping. So he decided to make his house out of bricks, which was the strongest material he knew of.
One sunny day, the Big Bad Wolf found the three little pigs, who ran away from him to hide in Fifer Pig’s house, the house of straw, but the Big Bad Wolf blew the house down with just one blow since the straw was so light.
The same thing happened to Fiddler Pig’s house, the wooden house. The Big Bad Wolf had to huff and puff a little harder, but this was no problem at all for the hungry wolf.
However, Practical Pig’s house, being made of brick, could not be blown down, no matter how much he huffed and puffed. And so, the three little pigs lived happily ever after and the younger brothers learned their lesson.
