The Three Little Pigs

James Halliwell-Phillips Collection

the three little pigs leave homeo flourishOnce upon a time there was an old sow with three little pigs, and as she didn’t have enough to take care of them, she sent them out to seek their fortune.

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 a house”; which the man did, and the little Pig built a house with it. Just then a wolf came and knocked at the door, saying, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”

But the pig knew better and replied, “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, and ate up the little pig.

The second pig met a man with a bundle of shrubs, and said, “Please, Sir, give me those shrubs to build a house”; which the man did, and the pig built his house.

Then along came the wolf and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”

“No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin.”

“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, and at last he blew the house down, and ate up the second little pig.
