children’s story

There once was an old Sow or Mommy pig who had . She did not have enough resources to keep them, so she sent them out to build houses.

The first little pig

The first that went off met a Man with a bundle of straw, and said to him;

“Please, Sir, give me that straw to build me a house.”

The Man did that, and the little Pig built a house with it. Soon, a wolf came along and knocked at the door. He said, “Little Pig, little Pig, let me come in.”

The first little Pig answered, “No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin.”


“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!”
said the Wolf. So he huffed and he puffed, and he blew his house in. The first little pig ran away and sought shelter in his brother’s house where he was safe.

The second little pig

The second Pig met a Man with a bundle of sticks, and said, “Please, sir, give me those sticks to build a house.” The Man did that, and the Pig built his house.

Along came the Wolf. He said, “Little Pig, little Pig, let me come in.”

The second little pig replied, “No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin.”

The wolf replied, “then I’ll puff and I’ll huff, and I’ll blow your house in!” So he huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and he huffed. At last, he blew the house down. The second little pig ran away to his brother’s house where he was safe.

The third little Pig

The third little Pig met a Man with a load of bricks. He said, “please, Sir, give me those bricks to build a house.” The Man gave him the bricks, and he built his house with them.

So the Wolf came, as he said to the third little Pigs, “little Pig, little Pig, let me come in.”

The third little pig replied, “No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin.”

The wolf growled, “then I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in.”

The wolf huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and he huffed, but he could not blow the house down.

The wolf invited the third little Pig to find a field of turnips

When he found that he could not blow down the brick house, with all his huffing and puffing, the wolf said, “Little Pig, I know where you can find a nice field of turnips.”

“Where?” asked the little pig.

The wolf replied,

Oh, in Mr. Smith’s home-field. If you will be ready tomorrow morning, I will call for you, and we will go together and get some for dinner.”

“Very well,” said the little Pig, “I will be ready. What time do you mean to go?”

“Oh, at six o’clock,” replied the naughty wolf.

Well, the little Pig got up at five and got the turnips. He returned home before six. When the Wolf came he said, “Little Pig, are you ready?”

“Ready!” replied the little Pig, “I already got the turnips, and got a nice, full pot for dinner.

The wolf invited the third little Pig to pick apples

The Wolf felt very angry but thought that he would outsmart the third little Pig somehow or other. He said, “Little Pig, I know where you can find a nice apple tree.”

“Where?” replied the third little pig.

“Down at Merry-garden,” replied the Wolf. “If you will not deceive me I will come for you at five o’clock tomorrow, and we will go together and get some apples.”

The third little Pig woke at four the next morning. He speedily went off for the apples, hoping to return home before the Wolf arrived. However, he had to walk a long distance and also had to climb the tree.

Just as he was climbing down from the tree, the third little pyg saw the Wolf coming. When the Wolf came up to the tree he said, “Little Pig, what! are you here before me? Are they nice apples?”

Yes, they are very nice,” the third little Pig replied; “I will throw one down to you.” He threw the apple very far from the tree. While the Wolf ran to pick it up, the little Pig jumped down and ran home.

The cunning wolf invited the third little Pig to a fair

The next day the Wolf came again. He said to the little Pig, “Little Pig, there is a Fair in the Town this afternoon: will you go?

“Oh, yes,” said the Pig, “I will go. What time will you be ready?”

“At three,” said the .

The third little Pig went off before the time, as usual. He got to the Fair and bought a butter churn. On his way home, he saw the Wolf coming.

He did not know what to do! So he got into the churn to hide. As he did so, the butter churn began to turn around. Then it began to roll, and roll and roll.

It rolled down the hill with the little Pig inside. The greedy Wolf became so frightened that he ran home without going to the Fair.

The wolf goes down the chimney of the little pig’s house

The wolf went to the little Pig’s house. He told him how frightened he had been by a great round thing that rolled down the hill past him.

Then the little Pig said, “Hah! I frightened you, did I? I had been to the Fair and bought a butter churn, and when I saw you I got into it, and rolled down the hill.”

Then the Wolf became very angry when he heard those words. He declared that he would eat the little Pig and that he would get down the chimney to get him.

The third little pig ate the wolf

The third little Pig saw what the wolf was doing. He filled a huge pot with water and prepared a blazing fire. Just as the Wolf came down the chimney, the third little pig removed the cover of the pot.

The wolf fell into the huge pot of boiling water with a splash. The third little Pig replaced the cover and sealed the wolf inside the pot.

He boiled the wolf and ate him for supper. Then the third little pig lived happily ever after.
