Connor wrote and illustrated his own version of the three little pigs. I enjoyed it so much I thought I would share! (I had to document it well – It was a present for his 2nd grade teacher!)
I’ve transcribed the words, just in case you have trouble reading it. As the story progresses, there is less and less punctuation and capitalization. I guess he was too excited to worry about that.
You might remember his last story that I shared two years ago “Jack the Rat”. It was a great book too.
The Three Little Piggies and the Big Bad Wolf, by Connor Lynch
Once upon a time, there were three little piggies – Sam, Max and Ruthie. They each built a house. Sam’s was made of straw. Max’s was made of sticks. Ruthie’s house was made of . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Bricks! – cause Ruthie was smarter than Max and Sam and she took her time so it would be more stable than the other houses.
One day, the big bad wolf came to Sam’s house and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in!”
“No, no, no!”, said Sam.
So the wolf huffed and he puffed and he blew the house in.
Sam went to Max’s house, horrified of the beastly wolf.
The wolf said, “Little pigs, let me come in!”
“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin,” said Max.
“Then I’ll huff and and I’ll puff and blow your house in,” said the wolf.
He blew down the house.
The two pigs ran to Ruthie’s house.
The wolf said, “Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in!”
“No! Never!,” said the pigs.
“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in,” said the wolf.
It did not work. Then he got an idea.
“I’ll go down the chimney,” he said.
Soon the little pigs thought up of boiling soup that needed wolf in. So . . . . . .
When the wolf got the ladder, the water was boiling hot and when the wolf went down the chimney, so he died and got eaten. So . . . .
The pigs celebrated their victory and had a party and they lived happily ever after.
The only help I gave on this book was the binding. I used a very sharp needle and some non-stretchy cording to stitch up the binding to hold the pages together.
Tomorrow I’ll show you a tutorial for the zipper pouch I made for his teacher!
Until then . . . here’s a peak.
