Three Little Pigs

Dad is back at school today after having three days off, but Jane is still home (she already had today and Monday off pre-winter weather). The four of us were sitting down to lunch when Megan graciously offered to tell us a story. I wish that I had been writing it down while she said it, but I'll reproduce it best I can here.


Once upon a time there were three little pigs. They really wanted to get into the castle, but they weren't allowed. Every time they went in the king tossed them out. He did that because the castle rule was No Animals Allowed.

The only animals allowed in the castle were sheep. The king didn't toss them out. So the pigs got costumes like sheep and sneaked into the castle. The king knew they were pigs because he could see their pig noses and their pig feet. He tossed them out!

The pigs fixed their costumes to cover up their noses and their feet and sneaked back into the castle. The king still knew they were pigs because he could see their pig tails. He tossed them out again.

The pigs fixed their costumes so they covered their whole bodies and sneaked back into the castle and stole all the gold! That's why they wanted to get into the castle. They looked just like sheep, but the king heard them oink like pigs so he sent a dragon to catch them when they ran away with the gold.

Two of the pigs were fast and ran away, but one pig was too slow and the dragon killed it. The other pigs buried the pig that died and they hid all the gold.

The End
