The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

Based on the book The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas

When it comes time for the three little wolves to go out into the world and build themselves a house, their mother warns them to beware the Big Bad Pig. But the little wolves’ increasingly sturdy dwellings are no match for the persistent porker, who has more up his sleeve than huffing and puffing. It takes a chance encounter with a flamingo pushing a wheelbarrow full of flowers to provide a surprising and satisfying solution to the little wolves’ housing crisis.

There are three little wolves who live with their mother and they decide it’s time to go and live on their own. With a warning to beware the Big Bad Pig, mother wolf sends her little wolves out into the world. When the wolves leave home, they realize that they need to build a house to live in. They meet a kangaroo with a hearty supply of bricks and ask if they can buy some bricks to build their home. The kangaroo agrees, and they build themselves a nice brick house. But the next day, the Big Bad Pig comes and tries to blow their house down. Blowing doesn’t cause any damage, but the pig isn’t called big and bad for nothing…he gets a sledgehammer and knocks the house down!

The wolves escape and decide to build an even stronger house. They see a rhinoceros with chains, sheet metal, padlocks, and all manner of heavy metal. They purchase some supplies from the rhinoceros and build a new house. But the Big Bad Pig returns and dismantles the house with a drill. The three little wolves escape once again and decide that they need to try something different.

Just then they see a flamingo with a wheelbarrow full of flowers. So the wolves decide to build their new home out of flowers. This time when the pig comes and takes a deep breath to blow down the house, he accidentally inhales the wonderful smell of all the flowers and starts dancing. The pig loses his big and bad disposition, and becomes friends with the three little wolves.
