Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from The Three Little Pigs

…The third little pig met a man pushing some bricks, and he said to the man, "Please sir, sell me your bricks so I can build a house with them."

The man sold him the bricks, and the third little pig built his house.

Soon after the pigs built their houses, a big wolf knocked on the door of the first pig's house.

"Little pig, little pig, let me in," the wolf yelled, "open the door and let me in!"

"No! No!" the pig cried, "I'll never, never, never let you in, not by the hair on my piggy little chin!"
