I think the pigs have to stay away from wolfs! I am glad the 3rd pig actully built an actual house that they would be safe in! Terell — May 2, It is a special Storynory version. Natasha — May 6, Bertie — May 13, I like it because the wolf ate the fist and second pig up but the last pig tircked the wolf down the fire.
I like it because the wolf ate the first and second pig but the last pig tircked the wolf and ate the wolf for supper. Shannon — May 20, I like the story because the three little pigs win in the end and the third little pig tricks the wolf that it can come at the same time as the wolf. The Woolf tries three times to get into the houses built by each Little Pig, who resourcefully make their houses of three materials: straw, wood and bricks.
Natasha — May 30, I like the story but I think this could be a bit shorter for children because they can get bored. The story is very good we thought that the pig went to the brick house and the wolf died ant then they lived hapliy ever after. We thought that because the story is a fairy tale. Yes the three pigs, smartly try to out do the evil big bad Woolf, by the building of three houses, straw, wood and brick.
There are lots of different fairytale endings to this tale. Natasha — June 6, Natasha — June 15, Nita — June 16, Rishay — June 23, I liked this story because the story is funny and the third pig was smarter than the rest of the pigs. Thank you for your comment this is a wonderful Fairytale and we have a little twister that goes with it. Natasha — July 10, Anna — September 14, Anonymous — September 18, I love hearing Natasha read the story,the story inspired me to make my own stories.
I also love the way Natasha says bye bye, so then I go to another story. Thank you for your comment The Three Little pigs is a good shorter tale of the fairytales. The Little Pigs have to be very on their guard in their houses made of brick, straw and stone , in order to keep the Big Bad Woolf away. Natasha — September 22, Alexis Ramirez — September 30, It is a tale with lots of moral lessons. Natasha — October 9, Can you pleasy please write a funny funny funny funny funny book about arisbet with the fatest dog ever and the big giant named giselle.
Thanks for Listening. Natasha — October 14, Only slight word variations made the texts different. The story follows the same pattern and the ending is the same. This is a funny story. The pictures in the version from Bishop add a lot to the story. Students will enjoy this story for a long time to come. This story on StoryNory can be considered a retelling as it contains additional scenes from the traditional telling of The Three Little Pigs.
In another version of The Three Little Pigs, retold by Brenda Parkes, the plot sticks to the traditional plot of this well-known story. This version can be considered a variant as it does not change much of the story. However both stories can be considered literature that falls under the traditional fantasy label as the plots and characters of both are simple. In Parkes retelling, the illustrations are lively and engaging and do a good job of complimenting the plot.
Comparing this three little pigs to a variant I recently read shows many differences, as would be expected. In the traditional three little pigs as posted by Story Nory, the first two pigs were eaten up because of their foolishness. However in the variant I read The Three Little Guinea Pigs by Peter Kavanagh , the first guinea pig was taken to a home and the other two were left behind and very sad. Eventually, the parents bought the other two guinea pigs and all three lived together happily ever after. Clearly, the violence and abruptness of the first is much more than that of the retelling.
In both stories, the plot was simple and direct; it was not deeply developed. The three little guinea pigs did not fear for their lives, only their happiness; they did not want to be taken to new homes without each other. In the Three Little Pigs, the pigs feared for their lives from the big bad wolf. The language of The Three Little Guinea Pigs was not in keeping with the original tale; clearly it was retold and the old language was not replicated.
Similarly, the retelling was adapted for modern times; guinea pigs were eaten back when the Three Little Pigs was orally passed down and the whole idea of going to a pet store and finding a pet would not even be recognized.

The retelling of The Three Little Pigs was adapted from The Three Little Pigs and made for modern times; the violence was decreased and evil was not as present. The original for instance is much more violent. Two of the pigs and the wolf get eaten, where as in the re-telling no one is physically harmed at all, the pig just destroys their houses. Also the plain fact that in the re-telling the Pig is the bad character is very different.
It is not usual to think of a pig going after a wolf, but that is the case in the re-telling. The types of houses are also varied between these two stories. The re-telling is more modernized so they use things such as concrete, and barbed wire where the original just has sticks and straw. The way they are destroyed also makes a difference.
In the original he just blows them down, but in this re-telling he actually uses tools like a jack hammer to knock down the house. The Three Little Pigs retold and illustrated by Steven Kellogg: In this retelling of the original Three Little Pigs tale, the pigs, their mother, and the wolf are given specific names like Serafina Sow and Tempesto, whereas, in the tradition version as on storynory, no specific names are given. Kellogg creates an interesting and more modern context for his retelling. The Sow family creates a waffle business that multiplies by the end of the book. However, the Sow family members are waiting at the bottom of the chimney with a waffle iron.
In both of these stories the pigs are extremely smart and save themselves from getting eaten. The big difference is that the ending in The Three Pigs is completely different than the traditional version. All three pigs stay alive and adventure into other traditional stories.
The illustrations in The Three Pigs add a lot to the story and make it come to life. He had a cold so as he knocked on the first two pigs door, he accidentally blew their houses down with a sneeze. As the cops showed up at the third house, he was having a sneeze attack and they twisted his story. This perspective is totally different than the original and portrays the pigs as evil and the wolf as good.
The illustrations compliment this by making the pigs angry and ugly while the wolf is seen as a gentle creature. The plot is simple and direct but is also entertaining to the reader because Al is a sort of comedian. This is a good story and i like it but this story is like the other story i read and the wolf ate the little girl and her grandma and i was sad cause he ate them i was bout to cry and i did not want that to happen and just like the three little pig mother was sick ank the little girl mother and grandma was sick and i like both of the story but they both good i like it so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I read this story to my grandpa. He loves this story. When I read this story he cept on looking at me for a random reason. Did they do that to you? I think the three little pigs is awsomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for your comment The Three Little Pigs is a story we love to read time and time again because lots of things happen in threes. Natasha — November 18, I love this story ever sence i was 3 years old i had the movie i keept watching it over and over again!!!!
Mitchell Power — December 13, The Little Pigs are afraid of the big bad Wolf who threaten to blow their house down, but they each remain strong with their houses of straw, wood and brick.
Don't Forget, Lara! (White Wolves: Familiar Settings)
Natasha — December 18, I like the part where the wolf blew his house down. I also liked the part where the wolf got very angry. Thanks, this is observant. The Wolf is a character we remember well in the story. When he gets angry at the Little pigs it is because they will not let them into their houses.
Natasha — December 22, When the wolf came up he said: iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it. Thank you for your comment The Three Little Pigs is a funny tale. Natasha — January 11, I loves the story. There is no place for big bad wolfs…except in the octagon. I think instead of the wolf dying…he should be taught to eat veggies…not Piggies.
I loved the story it was so cool the way the wolf asked the little pig to come with him to pick some apples and turnips and go to the fair at a diffent time and every time the wolf asked the pig to come to the things the third little pig went one hour early because the little pig did not want to be eaton. Priss — January 24, I like it! This is a cool story, little pigs is a very,very sweat! But I am 10 years alone has grown to. Super, The Three Little Pigs is an excellent story and one we can find very useful to learn from. When the Wolf huffs and puffs to blow down their houses, all the pigs stay strong to keep their house made of brick, wood and straw.
Natasha — February 2, I so love the story so much I give it a ten out of ten. Hello That is great the Three Little Pigs is an excellent short Fairytale and the three little pigs themselves are very brave in front of the Wolf when he knocks on their doors.

Natasha — February 28, I put it on my website. It is a site for kids. They really enjoyed it. I always take stories from this site! Sosa — February 29, I just have a project to do about stories. Yes I quite agree. There are lots of fairy tales with horrible endings in which the characters get eaten up including A Little Red Riding Hood. Natasha — April 8, Isabella — April 16, The Story of the Three Little Pigs is a very good story and one we enjoy a great deal but there are other stories that you may enjoy on Storynory.
Natasha — April 16, The ones you have read or heard elsewhere are fakes. Bertie — May 11, Aniya Beard — May 11, I love this story, reminds me my childhood days and its great that its in audio form now. My niece loves hearing the story from this website. Leighiandra Kasheen — May 24, One of my favorite stories… Sharing stories with my kids through audio books makes it more interesting. Keep it uP! Leighiandra Kasheen — May 26, Bertie — June 6, The Three Little Pigs, is a good story and we grow fond of the three little pigs who although a little scared stand up to the Big Bad Wolf. Natasha — July 7, And my dad is on a trip to our country and his going to come back on the 13th any questions, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese write back!!!
Have a wonderful time! Bertie — July 11, Lol this is funny how Natasha was reading but i love 3 little pigs!!!! One of the best books ever in my child hood! I like the third little pig because he was smart and steady. This is the funniest version I ever read. Chanel — September 23, Awsome story! I really didnt enjoy the Three Little Pigs story.
This is not the way it was told me. However, I am happy that the last pig out smart the wolf. It shows great courage and brain storming.
I did like this original version of the story. I like the contrast between the two, because in this story the pigs are very clearly the victims. In the story I read the same plot is followed, but it tells the story in such a way that the wolf is the victim and the pigs are very mean to him. It was interesting seeing this story come to life from the imagination of two different authors. I really enjoyed this story because I have never heard a version where the pig eats the wolf before! In this version, the wolf still eats the pigs, but his intention was only to borrow a cup of sugar.
I recommend this book to find out how the wolf was actually framed!
This version of the Three Little Pigs is much different than the one I am use to. He said that he was only looking for a coup of sugar to use to bake a birthday cake for his grandma. He also had a bad cold. Every time he would ask a neighbor for some sugar the pig living there would tell him no, and then he always had to sneeze, and the sneeze would knock the house down.
In the end of this version the wolf ends up in jail, not eaten by the third little pig. This story was a great reminder of the traditional Three Little Pigs. It is told from the perspective of the wolf and turns the traditional tale upside down. Hi Ashley, thank you for the interesting idea. Poor wolf! He might have to tell it from inside the cooking pot. Bertie — October 29, From comparing this story to The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bag Pig, you can see many things that the story has in common such as the plot and the characters, but puts a spin on the characters role and how the story ends.
Although it is more aggressive, it gives you a different perspective on a similar story. In my version, a retelling by David McPhail, the wolf does not eat the pigs as he blows down their houses, rather, the first runs to second, and the first and second run to the third. The third little pig also happens to be a girl in this version! This particular variant also has a happy ending which makes any book better.
I really enjoyed this telling of the Three Little Pigs as I had forgotten that the pig ended up eating the wolf at the end. In this book, the main characters are dassies, or little dogs from Namibia. The dassies are threatened by an eagle who lives in the mountains, but the dassies outsmart the eagle and stay safe by living in the house built with stones. It was interesting to read both of these two versions as many aspects of the story line are the same such as one bad and mean character and three kinds of houses, but the differences in character portrayal and plot structure provide children with new insights into this traditional fantasy story.
This story is similar to the traditional story, except that one difference is that this story is more gory.
However, an adult may have to explain some of the vocabulary used in the story. The differences between this retelling and the story are in the story line and the materials used to build the houses. In this retelling, the wolves are the innocent ones building the house and the pig is the bully. The houses are also built with different, more modern materials than in the original. In the end, everyone lives happily ever after, unlike the traditional. The characters are still very flat but their actions are more modern. This story would be great if a lighter more happily ever after story was sought after.
This story is similar to the classic tale, with a slight twist. My version of the Three Little Pigs is a variant by Gavin Bishop in which the Pigs begin out by the pool and the wolf walks in with a Walkman in the end the last little pig outsmarts the wolf. The final illustration depicts an empty pot, a satisfied pig holding his belly, and dinner supplies such as a plate, salt, and pepper, and other food utensils.
That was an unexpected twist. In this retelling, Weisner has the three little pigs adventure through different story books. In order to escape from the wolf, the pigs take a page from their story and create a paper airplane, flying through several other fairy tales with different illustrations. The three little pigs end up escaping from the wolf by bringing along a dragon from one of the story books they visited. The only similarity to the original story is the characters of the three pigs and the wolf. It was amazing! I have heard of many stories about the three little pigs but this was my favorite.
This is my 5th time reading it. I love it! Monsieuranh — December 4, Becca — December 5, Max — January 3, Andy — February 8, HI — February 11, I liked this story because it was funny. I liked the part when it was like the pig was the emeny and the wolf was the supper.
O — March 12, Paris — March 14, I found this version of The Three Little Pigs very interesting. I had never heard the part about the pig outsmarting the wolf with the fair and apple tree before. The Three Pigs by David Wiesner is a unique retelling of this story. They end up creating their own ending to the story. It was interesting to be able to compare this version of a popular story with the original. Still, the retelling does include one death that is also included in the classic version, and it is that of the wolf.
This version of the Three Little Pigs seems more complicated than the original version. In the original, there are no details about the third pig tricking the wolf. Another main difference between this version and the original versions of the story is that two of the pigs were killed. This makes the story much sadder. Bertie — April 3, Instead of a malevolent hunter, the Wolf is portrayed as a sick neighbor, trying to borrow some sugar from the rude pigs. The tale ends with the wolf being sent to jail, instead of getting eaten by the third pig. However, it also provides a different perspective that many children would probably overlook.
By claiming the wolf as the narrator instead of the pigs, children will begin to realize that there are multiple sides to every story. I enjoyed listening to this version of the Three Little Pigs. There were new things that I recognized when I listened to the story that were different from when I heard the story as a child. Before hearing this version, I had an opportunity to read a retelling by Gavin Bishop.
These two versions are very similar.
Little Puppet Boy | Bloomsbury Publishing | Best Educational Toys, Gifts, Games & Books
The plot is exactly the same, but this version is a bit more descriptive. It gives more explanation of the things that happen in the story. For example, this version explains that poverty is the reason that the mother tells the pigs to leave the house, whereas the retelling does not include the reason, but simply says that the mother pig decided that it was time for the sons to leave. I enjoyed listening to this version and pictureing the story of the Three Little Pigs.
This version of the three little pigs was unlike any other that I have heard. It was very similar to the version I am used to but had a lot more gruesome parts to the story. The Three Pigs by David Weisner does not stay so true to the original three little pigs telling. It tells the story of the three little pigs leaving their fairytale and jumping into others to escape the wolf. In the end they bring a dragon with them and end up defeating the wolf as seen in this retelling.
Although Weisner takes a different approach to the traditional story I prefered it over the original when it came to sharing the story with children. This story is completely different than the original story of The Three Little Pigs. In this story instead of the pigs being victimized, it is the wolves. There are three wolves and a big, mean, pig comes stomping in and trying to destroy their home. The pig uses different ways than the original story such as with explosives, a sledgehammer, and a drill after the pig tries to huff and puff and that proves to be unsuccessful.
The wolves also made their home out of different materials than the original story, where they use straw, bricks and twigs. Instead the wolves use flowers, concrete, and bricks, which is why the pig has to use different methods to try and knock it down. In the end of this book, the pig becomes friends with the three wolves, differing from the original, where the bad guy the wolf becomes the supper.
Added building materials for the wolves houses such as concrete and steel as well as the illustrations to match made the version I read more fit for a contemporary audience. Truly, the Three Little Pigs is a tale that transcends time period! Is this the traditional version of The Three Little Pigs? This version of the three little pigs was different than any I have ever heard.
I have never heard a version that was so violent. Although there were similarities between this version and the version that I grew up knowing as a child, I think that this version was not originally meant for small children. This version was told by the wolf and explained how the traditional story originally framed him as the big bad wolf from the beginning. I think I will stick with the version I grew up with as a young child.
I love this version of the Three Little Pigs. This is what my brother and I used to read when we were little! The third pig is a good model for children to follow because he uses his brain and is smart about the way that he handles the wolf. The two books represent very different approaches to the base story of The Three Little Pigs. These stories show that literature can be quality, edifying, and fun from either extreme. This story is different from the story that I had originally learned about the Three Little Pigs. In the story that I heard, all three pigs lived and ended up at the house of brick.
I did like the story though. Obvioulsy since it is a retelling it had a similar story to that of the Three Little Pigs. It was also very interesting. I figured that once the three little wovles built the house that looked like a prision, they were going to lock the Big Bad Pig inside. I did not expect the pig to smell flowers and become friedly. This version of The Three Little Pigs is different than any other version I have heard in my experience.
There was a lot more detail and development regarding the fate of the third pig and then the wolf himself. Before reading this, I had forgotten that the third pig eats the wolf in the end. This version of the story was similar to the traditional version except the roles were switched. In this version, the pig is the evil character who is eventually turned good in the end. Overall, the characteristics of the story were very similar, but each author put a unique spin on the tale to make it more interesting!
In addition, I thought that while both of the stories plots were simple and direct with their simple usage of characters and story line, the stories themes were different. While the original outlined an aspect of cunning revenge, the retelling I read ended with friendship between the antagonist and the protagonists. I would not consider his story to be a retelling, as the details were all the same besides minor changes in the wording.
Rather than simply listening to the words, students can visualize the story and characters through the fun illustrations on the pages. Although wonderful illustrations are included, the plot is quite simple and direct. The simple yet intriguing plot would be exciting for any child! The wolves are fluffy and friendly and just trying to make it in the new world. However, the Big Bad Pig will not leave them alone. He destroys three of their houses, no matter what they were constructed of, he found a way to destroy it.
The illustrations also add a ew aspect to the retelling story. The images really allowed the reader to notice the badness of the Big Bad Pig. The Pig just looked evil and out to cause problems. I was unable to see pictures with the retelling, but was unable to see pictures with the StoryNory version. In both stories, however, the plot is simple and direct.
Both stories follow the same plot line, each is just told from a different perspective. The newer retelling that I read was lively and comical. It makes the story more believable. The story represents cultural norms because it shows the value of hard work and personal labor. In this alternative version of the story it is a retelling of the story, as the events and details are extremely different from the traditional version.
In this other version of the three little pigs there are three little guinea pigs that are taken from a pet shop and are separated. Eventually the three little pigs are reunited. Both versions of this story have a simple plot which is extremely understandable. However, the alternative version seems to be written to conform to modern values where this version of the story represents cultural norms of the time when it was written.
This version is much more violent and gruesome where the guinea pig version is more sugar coated and appropriate for small children. Bertie — April 29, Balqis — June 15, Tyrone cool — July 30, I read this book when I was little and I liked it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bill Bo — September 3, Shannon angle — September 9, I loved the history read by you, Natasha. Thanks for the opportunity to travel with you. In the Three Little Kittens, there are three cats who are trying to please their mother, just as the three pigs go out into the world to please their mother in this story. A major difference between the two stories, however, is that all three kittens act as one collective unit, either doing well for themselves finding and cleaning their mittens , or doing poorly losing and spoiling their mittens.
Although the pigs also either do well or poorly for themselves, they do it individually, as each pig builds his house with a different material, and each pig has a different encounter with the wolf. Both stories end happily, however, as the Three Little Kittens get to eat a rat for dinner, and the last little pig gets to eat a wolf for dinner. Compared to the traditional version of the story, it stays very close to the original and varies only slightly with minor plot details.
His retelling does not involve the death of any pigs, and the pigs display manners by acknowledging to give something in return for the materials they receive. In this version the three pigs as well as the wolf stayed alive. They both have the same setting, however, and are closely related.
I like the way they made their houses. Thanks Natasha! I like the story v. The third pig is so clever. Natasha is an excellent story teller. Please give us more nice stories. Thank you. In my opinion, you help us a lot, the parents, and provide us with qualitative material for teaching them. In the original version, the wolf is seen as the evil character but in my version of the tale the wolf is seen as a misrepresented character.
In both cases, the language was engaging but the final outcome was very different. I like both versions of the story and find them fun to read. I prefer reading the Bishop book because it contains very vibrant pictures that help with the simplicity of the plot. They illustrate the events of the book in great detail and make the story come to life. Only a few words differ from the story written above.
The language in this book is very lively and engaging. The reader will want to find out what happens next to the three little pigs. There is new vocabulary in the story in which children will want to find out more about. The Three Little Pigs by Gavin Bishop follows the traditional version of the story of the three little pigs. The plot and theme are the same.
Both tellings have a simple and direct plot which follows the path of a hungry wolf and three pigs off to seek their fortune. Both stories share the theme that in order to out-trick a trickster you have to think like them. The language is both lively and engaging, but uses more modern language than the original. Also, the illustrations compliment the story well. They both have simple and direct plots, however the end of the stories take very different turns.

Established as the City Puppet Theatre , LPT emerged as a follow-up to numerous semi-professional puppet groups organised in the region since the beginning of the 20th century. The theatre fast developed its own mode of expression and soon became the leading puppet theatre in the then Yugoslavia. At first, the performances were based on the marionette technique, but later it also got engaged in the possibilities of hand puppetry.
However, from the seventies onward the theatre has been consistently trying to advance the technological and dramatic possibilities of puppetry, cultivating a captivating mixture of classical contents and experimentation. Though it initially focused on works by Slovene authors, the theatre's most important early performances were adaptations of foreign works. It was followed by the same-titled film, the first Yugoslav colour marionette film that greatly contributed to its huge success. Besides its regular performances the theatre runs two festivals and is extremely active on the international stage.
It also organises puppetry workshops and is generally devoting a lot of attention to various educational activities through which it wishes to advance the art of puppetry. To this end it thus systemically collaborates with schools across Slovenia. The theatre cultivates all the main puppetry genres marionette, hand puppets, Java puppets, shadow puppets, mimic puppets; it also develops new ones , and preserves more than puppets from past performances. It keeps an important collection relating to the Slovene puppetry heritage — see the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre Museum Collection , now partly incorporated into the Museum of Puppetry.
Novak , and Silvan Omerzu being among the more prominent ones , yet also of many writers from elsewhere. With all the curious new productions, many of which stand out in significant ways, but a few important works can be mentioned. Forbidden Loves , based on antique motifs, and awarded in Hungary, Croatia and Bulgaria in , and an interpretation of Pinnochio , featuring different puppet techniques and dimensions, acting, shadows and music.
The slightly refreshed performance still uses puppets from the original staging. An example of international co-production was LPT's performances that included a highly engaged puppet performance for adults about alienation in contemporary society. Love Dolls , co-produced with the Dutch DudaPaiva Company, curiously fused modern dance, puppetry, music and multimedia. The theatre is a member of the International Puppetry Association UNIMA, of which first congress was held in Ljubljana in , and then repeated in again the Lutke festival was initiated on that occasion.
