Tiffany Ann Rose
, age 4
, from Marietta, Georgia
, was visiting her friends, the three
little pigs. She couldn't believe all the commotion at their house. Boxes and suitcases
"What's going on?" Tiffany
"Today is moving day," answered Big Pig. "We're each going to build our own house."
"What fun! Can I help?" Tiffany
"Sure," answered Mid Pig.
"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," Tiffany
"But my house will be built in no time," Wee Pig answered. And he began to build his

"Well, sticks are stronger than straw," Tiffany
said. "But sticks will not make a very

and Big Pig kept driving. After awhile, they met a man selling bricks.
"Bricks would make a very strong house," Tiffany
told Big Pig.
"A brick house will take a long time to build," sighed Big Pig.
"Yes, but if we work together we'll have it done in half the time," Tiffany

She knew a straw house and a stick house would not keep out a big, bad wolf.
didn't want anything to happen to Wee Pig or Mid Pig and since Big Pig's house
was just about finished, Tiffany
went off to see if the two other pigs needed her help.
First she went to see Wee Pig, who had built his house out of straw. She arrived just in
time, because when Tiffany
entered the little pig's house she heard a tap-tap-tapping at
the door. It was the wolf!
"Little pig, little pig," the wolf cried. "Let me in."
Wee Pig was scared. "N-n-no," he stammered.
"Then I'll blow my way in," the wolf shouted. The wolf huffed and he puffed. The straw
house started blowing down all around Tiffany
and Wee Pig.
"Let's make a run for it!" Tiffany
cried; so she and the pig ran to Mid Pig's house.
Mid Pig saw Tiffany
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 them.
The wolf tap-tap-tapped at the stick door. "Little pigs, little pigs," he cried. "Let me come
"N-n-no," said Wee Pig.
"Absolutely not," said Mid Pig.
"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!" Tiffany
, Wee Pig, and Mid Pig ran as fast as they could to Big Pig's brick house. As
soon as they were inside, Big Pig bolted his strong door. Soon enough, they all heard the
"Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in," the wolf called.
"N-n-no," squealed Wee Pig.
"Absolutely not," said Mid Pig.
"Not ever!" shouted Big Pig.
"Get lost!" yelled Tiffany
The wolf started huffing and puffing, and puffing and huffing. But he couldn't blow the
brick house down. This made him terribly angry. " If I can't blow this house down, I'll climb
down the chimney!" the wolf yelled.
"Oh no," the pigs cried. "Tiffany
, what will we do?"

roof as he inched towards the chimney. If only Tiffany
had Mom, Dad, and Ansley
with her, together they'd know what to do.
had an idea. "Start a fire in the fireplace!" she called to Big Pig.
The wolf slid down the chimney and landed right on top of the fire. "Yeowch!" he
hollered. He shot straight back up the chimney and ran far, far away.
"Hooray!" the three little pigs yelled. "Thanks you Tiffany
, you saved us."
"No problem," Tiffany
smiled. " Now I have to go back to my own strong house in

all about you, your houses, and
the big, bad wolf."
