THE THREE LITTLE WOLVES

Once upon a time there were three little wolves. Hotdog, Sticks and Woof.

One day, the three wolves left their mother’s house and set off to find somewhere to live.

Hotdog said, ‘I’ll use bread buns to build my house,’

Sticks said, ‘I’ll use carrots to build my house.’

And Woof said, ‘I’ll use bricks to build my house.’

In the town there lived a big bad pig. He was big and greedy and really starving.

Big Bad Pig saw Hotdog’s house of bread buns.

He yelled, ‘Little wolf, little wolf, let me in. Or I’ll eat your house down.’

‘Go away,’ said Hotdog.

So Big Bad Pig opened his mouth really wide and ate the house down until all that was left was the wolf.

‘Great,’ said Hotdog. ‘Now I’ve got nowhere to live.’

 

Big Bad Pig just walked off and went to the second wolf’s house.

He yelled, ‘Little wolf, little wolf, let me in. Or I’ll eat your house down.’

‘Go away, Pig,’ said Sticks.

So Big Bad Pig opened his big mouth really wide and ate the house down until all the was left was the wolf.

‘Great,’ said Sticks. ‘Now I’ve got nowhere to live.’

 

Big Bad Pig just walked off and went to the third wolf’s house.

He said, ‘Little wolf, little wolf, let me in. Or I’ll eat your house down.’

‘Go away Pig, you can’t eat bricks!’ said Woof.

‘Make a bet!’ said Big Bad Pig.

‘Go on then, ‘ said Woof.

So Big Bad Pig opened his mouth really wide and bit the house. And broke his tooth.

‘Owch!’ squealed Big Bad Pig. Then he took another bite. And broke another tooth.

‘Owch!’ he squealed again.

‘Told ya!’ said Woof.

 

Big Bad Pig was really angry. And he thought of a plan. He climbed up the house, and onto the roof and down the chimney.

But Woof was ready for him and lit a fire and cooked the big bad pig.

 

Woof’s brothers came over to Woof’s house and said, ‘What’s for dinner?’

And Woof answered, ‘Pig stew.’
