Once upon a time there were three little pigs who were brothers. They each lived in their own house. One day a big bad wolf decided to have him some pigs for supper. So he went to each house huffing and puffing. He was threatening to blow their house down. The wolf blew down the first two houses. One was made of straw and the other of sticks. He then came to the house made of bricks. The three brothers were so frightened! The wolf blew and blew but couldn't blow the house down. He finally gave up. The three little pigs lived happily ever after in the sturdy brick house.
