The Three Little Pigs

 

 

Once upon a time there was a mother pig who had three little pigs. She was too poor to keep them and so she sent them out into the world to seek their fortune.

The first little pig met a man who was carrying a bundle of straw.

'Please, give me some straw to build a house,' said the little pig.

The man happily gave him some straw and the little pig built a nice house with it. 

Then along came a big bad wolf and he knocked at the door.

'Little pig, little pig, let me come in!' called the wolf.

'No, no, by the hair of my chiny chin chin!' cried the little pig.

'Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in!' howled the wolf.

So he huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house in. The wolf gobbled up the first little pig.

The second little pig met a man who was carrying a bundle of sticks.

'Please, give me some sticks to build a house,' said the little pig.

The man gave him some sticks and the little pig built his house.

Then along came the big bad wolf and he knocked at the door.

'Little pig, little pig, let me come in!' called the wolf.

'No, no, by the hair of my chiny chin chin!' cried the little pig.

'Then I'll puff, and I'll huff, and I'll blow your house in!' howled the wolf.

So he huffed, and he puffed, and he puffed, and he huffed, and at last he blew the house down. The wolf gobbled up the second little pig.

The third little pig met a man carrying a heavy load of bricks.

'Please, give me some bricks to build a house,' said the little pig.

The man gladly gave him some bricks and the little pig built his house with them.

Then along came the big bad wolf and he knocked at the door.

'Little pig, little pig, let me come in!' called the wolf.

'No, no, by the hair of my chiny chin chin!' cried the little pig.

'Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in!' howled the wolf.

Well, the wolf huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and huffed; but he could not get the house down. The wolf had to stop and sit down to catch his breath. Then he thought of a new way to trap the little pig.

'Little pig, I know where there is a nice field of turnips.' said the wolf.

'Where?' asked the little pig.

'Oh, in Mr Smith's field. If you will be ready tomorrow, we can go and get some.'

'I will be ready,' said the little pig. 'What time shall we go?'

'At six o'clock,' said the wolf.

Well, the little pig got up at five o'clock the next morning. He hurried out and got the turnips before the wolf came.

The big bad wolf arrived at six o'clock.

'Little pig, are you ready?' called the wolf.

'Ready?' asked the little pig. 'I have been and come back again with turnips for dinner.'

The wolf was angry, but he planned to outsmart the little pig.

'Little pig, I know where there is a nice apple tree,' said the wolf.

'Where?' said the pig.

'Down at Merry-garden,' replied the wolf. 'I will come for you at five o'clock tomorrow and we shall get some apples.'

Well, the next morning the little pig went out at four o'clock to pick some apples. He had far to go and he had to climb the tree. Just as he was climbing down, the little pig saw the wolf coming. The little pig was afraid and climbed higher up in the tree.

'Little pig, you are here early,' called the wolf. 'Are they nice apples?'

'Yes,' said the little pig. 'I will throw one down to you.'

And the little pig threw the apple as far as he could. When the wolf ran to fetch it, the little pig jumped down and ran away home.

The next day, the wolf came to the little pig's house.

'Little pig, there is a fair this afternoon, will you go with me?' asked the wolf.

'Oh yes,' said the pig, 'what time shall you be ready?'

'At three o'clock,' said the wolf.

The little pig went out early as usual. He got to the fair and went on all the rides. He bought a butter-churn at one of the farm stalls. Then the little pig was going home, when he saw the wolf coming up the hill.

The little pig climbed inside the butter-churn to hide. The butter-churn turned round and round. It rolled down the hill with the little pig going around inside it.

The rattling butter-churn frightened the wolf so much, that he ran home without going to the fair. He went to the little pig's house and told him how scared he had been by a big round thing that rolled down the hill at him.

'Hah, I frightened you then.' said the little pig. 'I had been to the fair and bought a butter-churn. When I saw you, I climbed inside it and rolled down the hill.' 

The wolf was angry and growled that he would eat the little pig. He climbed up on the roof to sneak down the chimney. When the little pig saw what the wolf was doing, he hung up a big pot of water and started a blazing fire.

Just as the wolf was coming down the chimney, the little pig took off the pot lid and in fell the wolf. The little pig quickly put the lid back on the pot. That was the end of the big bad wolf.

And so the third little pig lived happily ever after.
