The three little pigs

Once upon a time there were three little pigs, who wanted to start building their own houses.
Two of them used to spend their time doing nothing and having fun, they had no intention to work hard, so they decided to build their houses as simply and quickly as possible.
The first little pig built it out of straw: in a blink of an eye the house was done.
The second little pig made his house out of wood and sticks, even though he didn’t quite care about setting the sticks properly.
The third little pig was the wisest one: he preferred to build his house with bricks. He had to work hard for many days, but after much effort and goodwill he managed to finish it.
A few days after the three little pigs had finished their houses, a hungry wolf came along.
He stopped in front of the straw house, knocked at the door and said, "Little pig, little pig, let me in! Otherwise I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down!".
The frightened piggy kept the door closed, then the wolf huffed and puffed til he finally blew the house down.
The little pig ran away and dashed into his brother, who lived in the house made of sticks and locked the door before the wolf could catch them.
The bad wolf stopped in front of their door and said: "Dear little pigs, let me in! Otherwise I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down!".
Of course the little pigs did not open the door! Then the wolf started to huff and puff once again til he finally blew down the unstable house made of sticks.
The two piggies ran away as fast as they could and took refuge in their third brother’s house.
The hungry wolf followed them and once again knocked at their door: "Come on, just let me in! Otherwise I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down!".
The little pigs did not open the door! So the wolf began to huff and to puff, he huffed and puffed and huffed again but he could not blow that brick house down.
The bad wolf would not give up, so he decided to sneak into the house through the chimney. He climbed up on the roof of the house and started crawling down after the pigs.
The three little pigs realized what the wolf was doing, so they lit a fire in the fireplace.
The unsuspecting wolf continued coming down the chimney until he felt that something was burning beneath him.
As soon as he discovered that his tail was on fire, he jumped out of the chimney like a rocket and dashed away screaming in pain.
From that day on, the three little pigs never saw the wolf again. They learned how to stay together, to help each other and always do their best in everything.
And so they lived happily ever after.
