ATU 125: The Three Little Pigs
Animal Tales; Wild Animals or Domestic Animals; ATU 125
A tale about three pigs who all build houses to live in. One builds his of straw, another with sticks, and the third with bricks. A wolf is able to come along and blow down all but the last house, which was made with effort and foresight, unlike the ones that were built hastily with flimsy materials. Many morals surround this story, such as preparedness and the rewards of hard work vs. laziness.
