The three little Pigs

This is a story of house pig and wolf.

Moral(s) of the story: smartness

Once there lived a mother pig with her three piglets. Mrs Pig was very tired and said to her children, “Oh dear! I can’t do all this work anymore, I’m afraid you must leave home and make your own way in the world”.

So the three little pigs set off. After walking for a while, they met a man carrying a bundle of straw. “Excuse me” said the first little pig politely “would you please sell me some of your straw so I can make a house?” The man readily agreed and the first little pig went off to find a good place to build his house.

The other little pigs continued to walk along the road when they met a man carrying a bundle of sticks. “Excuse me” said the second little pig politely “would you please sell me some sticks so I can build a house?” The man readily agreed and the little pig said goodbye to his brother. The third little pig didn’t like his brothers’ ideas so he kept walking. He thought to himself, “I’m going to build myself a much bigger, better, stronger house” and kept on down the road until he met a man with a cart load of bricks.

“Excuse me” the third little pig said politely as his mother had taught him “Please can you sell me some bricks so I can build a house?” “Of course” said the man “where would you like me to unload them?” The third little pig looked around and saw a nice patch of ground under a tree, “Over there please” he pointed.

All of the three pigs set to work and up until nightfall, the houses of straws and sticks were ready but the house of bricks was only just beginning to rise above the ground. The first and second little pigs laughed and thought that their brother was really silly to work so hard when they had already finished.

However, a few days later the brick house was completed and looked very smart with shiny windows, a neat little chimney and a shiny knocker on the door.

After a few nights, soon after they had settled in, a wolf was out looking for food. By the light of the moon he spotted the first little pig’s house of straw. He went up to the door and called, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.” “No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin” replied the little pig. “Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house.” said the wolf who was a big, bad, greedy sort of wolf.

And he huffed, and he puffed and blew the house in. The little pig ran away as fast as his he could and went straight to the second little pig’s house to hide.

The next night the wolf was even hungrier and he saw the house of sticks. He walked up to the door and called, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.” “Oh no, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin” said the second little pig as the first little pig hid trembling under the stairs. “Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in” said the wolf.

And he huffed, and he puffed and blew the house in. But the little pigs ran away as fast as they could and went to the third little pig’s house to hide.

“What did I tell you?” said the third little pig “it’s important to build houses properly”. But he welcomed them in and they all settled down for the rest of the night.

The following night the wolf was even hungrier and feeling bigger and badder than ever. Prowling around in hunger, he came to the third little pig’s house. He crept up to the door and called, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.” “Oh no, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin” said the third little pig while the first and the second little pigs hid trembling under the stairs. “Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in” said the wolf.

And he huffed, and he puffed and he blew but nothing happened. So he huffed and he puffed and he blew again, even harder, but still nothing happened. The brick house stood firm.

The wolf growled, “I’m going to eat all of you” he growled “you just wait and see”. He prowled round the house trying to find a way in. The little pigs trembled when they saw his big eyes peering through the window. Then they heard a scrambling sound.

“Quick, quick” said the third little pig “he’s climbing the tree, I think he’s going to come down the chimney”.

The three little pigs got the biggest pan they had, and filled it full of water and put it on the fire to boil. They could hear the sound of the wolf climbing the tree and then walking along the roof.

The little pigs held their breath. The wolf was coming down the chimney. Nearer and nearer he came until, with a huge splash, he landed in the pan of water. “Yoweeeee!” he screamed and shot back up the chimney thinking his tail was on fire. The last the three little pigs saw of the big bad wolf was him flying over the treetops clutching a very sore tail.

So, the three little pigs lived happily together ever after in their very smart house of bricks.


Moral:

Do not do things in hurry without much thought. Take time, think your way through and then act.
