The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf - Story Decorations by Mary Alice Stoddard
Once upon a time three little pigs set out to seek their fortunes. One little pig asked a man for some straw with which to build a house. Soon after the house was built, a hungry wolf came along. "Let me in," cried the wolf. "No, no," cried the pig. So the wolf puffed out his chest and huffed and puffed until he blew the house down. But the little pig was too fast for him and ran away.
The second little pig met a man with a bundle of sticks. The man gave him some sticks and the pig built a house. Soon after, the same old hungry wolf came along. "Let me in," cried the wolf. "No, no," said tile little pig. So the wolf huffed and puffed extra hard and blew the house down. But the little pig ran so fast that the wolf could not catch him.
The third little pig met a man with a wheelbarrow full of red bricks. The man gave him some of the bricks and he built a fine, strong house. Now the big bad wolf was getting mighty hungry. "Let me in," cried he. "Oh, no," said the little pig. The wolf huffed and puffed, then he huffed and puffed some more, but he could not blow the house down.
Then, in a very sweet tone of voice, the wolf asked the little pig to meet him at Mr. Jone's turnip field the next morning. "All right," said the little pig. The little pig got up early and was back home safe and cooking his turnips by the time the wolf arrived, Next, the wolf asked the little pig to meet him by a very nice apple tree. "All right," said the little pig. But, again, he got there early and hid in the tree while the bad wolf looked for him.
Finally, the wolf asked the pig to go with him to the fair. So the little pig got ready before sunrise and was there when the fair opened. He had lots of fun on the merry-go-round. When he started for home, he bought a butter churn to take along. Then he saw the big, bad, hungry wolf coming to the fair, late, as usual. Into the churn leaped the little pig and the churn rolled safely past the wolf right into the little pig's house.
Now, the big bad wolf was so mad that he climbed up on the roof of the little pig's house and started down the chimney. But the little pig had seen him coming and had a kettle of boiling water over the fire. The wolf fell in the water and that ended the wolf. The three little pigs sold his hide and bought a big turnip patch of their own. Now they live happily together in their fine, strong house of red brick.
