Three little pigs original fairy tale
The Three Little Pigs by James MarshallThis rendition of The Three Little Pigs is similar to the original story I grew up knowing, but very different in many ways. First, the first two little pigs are both outsmarted and eaten by the wolf. This is different from the forgiving and gentle story I grew up with where the first and second pig eventually ran to the third pigs house for safety. Secondly, the methods that the wolf uses to attempt in outsmarting the third little pig are different. He tries to arrange meetings to eat turnips or pick from the garden, which the third little pig is smart enough to arrive early at. Unfortunately, when the wolf invites the third little pig to the fair, the pig forgets to leave early and is caught by the wolf. This leads back to the third little pigs home (made of stone) where the wolf tries to catch the pig by climbing down the chimney. The third little pig finally ends the torment by putting a boiling pot under the wolf, which he falls into and is cooked.
The illustrations for this Traditional story were bright and detailed. They were very descriptive to help add to the story and I enjoyed the expressions that each character had during different parts to the story.

The first that went off met a man with a bundle of straw, and said to him:. Which the man did, and the little pig built a house with it. Presently came along a wolf, and knocked at the door, and said:. So he huffed, and he puffed, and he puffed, and he huffed, and at last he blew the house down, and he ate up the little pig.

Once upon a time there were three little pigs. One pig built a house of straw while the second pig built his house with sticks. They built their houses very quickly and then sang and danced all day because they were lazy. The third little pig worked hard all day and built his house with bricks. The big bad wolf went to the first house and huffed and puffed and blew the house down in minutes. The big bad wolf now came to this house and huffed and puffed and blew the house down in hardly any time. The big bad wolf tried to huff and puff and blow the house down, but he could not.

When I was a child I had a story book where the Wolf was eaten and I hated it! When we decided to make our third personalised cd, based on the 3 Little Pigs story, we decided the original ending had to go! When the pigs, helped by many other fairy tale characters, eventually find the Wolf hiding in the woods, he is crying.
