The Three Little Pigs
Once upon a time, there were three little pigs who decided to leave their mother’s home and build houses of their own.
The first little pig was lazy and didn’t want to spend much time building a house. He decided to build his house out of straw. He quickly put up a straw hut and was very pleased with his work.
The second little pig was a little more thoughtful but still wanted to get done quickly. He decided to build his house out of sticks. It took a bit longer than the straw house, but he was satisfied with his work.
The third little pig was hardworking and wise. He understood the importance of building a strong and durable house. So, he decided to build his house out of bricks. It took him much longer than his brothers, but he was confident in the strength of his house.
One day, a big bad wolf came to the village where the three little pigs lived. He was hungry and looking for something to eat. He came to the first little pig’s straw house and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me in!”
The first little pig replied, “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!”
Then the wolf said, “Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down!” And with that, he blew down the straw house. But the first little pig managed to escape and ran to his brother’s stick house.
The wolf followed him and stood outside the second little pig’s house. “Little pig, little pig, let me in!” he called.
The second little pig replied, “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!”
The wolf then declared, “Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down!” And he blew down the stick house. The second little pig ran to the third little pig’s brick house, with the wolf hot on his heels.
When the wolf reached the brick house, he tried his usual tactic. “Little pig, little pig, let me in!” he shouted.
The third little pig confidently replied, “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!”
The wolf, growing frustrated, said, “Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down!” But no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t blow down the brick house. It was too strong and well-built.
Determined to get inside, the wolf then tried to trick the pigs by suggesting he’d come down the chimney. But the third little pig was clever. He placed a pot of boiling water at the base of the chimney. When the wolf came down, he landed right into the pot and was cooked.
The three little pigs rejoiced, knowing they were safe from the wolf. The first two pigs learned the importance of hard work and building something strong and durable. From then on, they lived happily ever after in the brick house, safe and sound.
