"Let's go!" shouted Wee Pig.
and the three little pigs ventured out in the woods to find the best place
to build houses. As they drove along they met a man selling straw.
"I could make a fine house out of
straw," Wee Pig said.
"Straw is not very strong,"

"Well sticks are stronger than

and Big Pig kept driving. After a while, they met a man selling bricks.
"Now bricks would make a very strong house,"
told Big Pig.
"A brick house will take a long

the little pig's house, she hear a
tap-tap-tapping at the door.

Wee Pig was scared. "N-n-no," Wee

the wolf shouted. The wolf huffed and he puffed. The straw house started
blowing down all around Jen and Wee Pig.
"Let's make a run for it!"
Jen cried; so
and the pig ran to Mid Pig's house.
Mid Pig saw
Jen and Wee Pig running towards his house with the wolf hot on their
trail. "Quick, get inside," he called, and he shut his stick door behind
The wolf tap-tap-tapped at the
stick door. "Little pigs, little pigs," he cried. "Let me come in."
"N-n-no," said Wee Pig.
"Absolutely not," said Mid pig.
"Well then, I'll blow my way in,"
the wolf shouted. The wolf huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and he
huffed. Soon the stick house started falling all to pieces. "Let's run to
Big Pig's house," Jen cried!
Wee Pig and Mid Pig ran as fast as they could to Big Pig's brick house. As

"Hooray!", the three little pigs yelled. "Thank you
Jen, you saved us."
"No problem," Jen smiled. "Now I have to go
back to my own strong house in West Allis, Wisconsin.
I want to tell Amber, Megan, and Alex
you, your houses, and the big, bad wolf."
