The pigs scampered down the garden path shouting with glee. Perky put his motorbike inside the shed and locked the door behind him.
Once safely indoors the pigs unpacked the shopping bags. Pepsi decided to make a fire, it was chilly in his little house. He grumbled as he struggled to light the damp paper amongst the pieces of wood in the grate. A tiny flame began to grow and before long the fire was burning bright.
A dark shadow crept towards the house. Wolf sniggered, now he was going to blow down this little brick house, once and for all!
Wolf stood at the front of the house, puffed out his cheeks and blew and blew. To his dismay and anger nothing happened. The little brick house stood as sturdy as ever. He scratched his head with a paw. He trotted down the side of the house and shinned up the drain pipe onto the roof. A strong wind blew his black tail across his back like a banner. He almost lost his balance as his claws slipped on the roof tiles. He reached out his paws and leaned over to stick his head down the chimney. For a moment he coughed loudly, as smoke puffed into his eyes. Inside the little house, flames began to leap up the chimney.
The three little pigs huddled behind the sofa, beady eyes darting back and forth.
‘Shhhh it must be Wolf, he’s on the roof,’ said Pepsi.
Wolf blinded by the smoke, lost his balance and tumbled down the chimney. As he landed in the grate feet first, flames licked around his tail.
‘Ouch,’ he yelped springing out of the fire, black fur smouldering. He ran across to the door, wrenched it open and disappeared outside. A trail of black paw marks remained on the carpet, as he vanished into the night.
‘We’re safe now,’ sang the three little pigs, laughing and dancing around in a circle.
Wolf lay in his lair sniffing in dismay at the singed fur on his bottom.
‘I’m going to hunt squirrels next time!’ he muttered curling up nose to tail and promptly fell asleep.
Moonlight shone through the bedroom window. The three little pigs lay snuggled together under the duvet, knowing they were safe at last in the little brick house.
