The True Story of the Three Little Pigs


At the beginning of the book, Alexander T. Wolf plans a cake for his grandmother's birthday. He checks in his cabinet for sugar but finds nothing. So he decides to go to the pig with the house made of straw. Although the pig won't let him come in Alexander then starts to sneeze (because of his bad cold). After eating the first pig, he goes to the pig's house made of sticks for sugar but is given the same word as the first pig. Wolf eventually sneezes again and finds the body of the second pig and devours it. After that, the Wolf goes to the pigs house made of bricks and asks him for sugar, but gets the same word as the second pig. Wolf sneezes again but the brick house remains intact, despite Wolf sneezes again and again and starts to get tired, Wolf tries to break the third pig's door, but the police found him trying to break down the pig's door, and news reporters wrote the story. After that, the Wolf was put in prison for 10 years for eating the two pigs. At the end of the book, Wolf asks politely to the police pigs if they have a cup of sugar.
