Presently came along a Wolf, and knocked at the door, and said, "Little Pig, little Pig, let me come in."</p> <p>To which the Pig answered, "No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin."</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-2.jpg" alt="Then I'll huff and I'll puff" title="Then I'll huff and I'll puff" /></div> <p><br /></p> <p>"Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in!" said the Wolf. So he huffed and he puffed, and he blew his house in, and ate up the little Pig.</p> <p>The second Pig met a Man with a bundle of furze, and said, "Please, Man, give me that furze to build a house"; which the Man did, and the Pig built his house.</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img004.jpg" alt="Then along came the Wolf" title="Then along came the Wolf" /></div> <p>Then along came the Wolf and said, "Little Pig, little Pig, let me come in."</p> <p>"No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin."</p> <p>"Then I'll puff and I'll huff, and I'll blow your house in!" So he huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and he huffed, and at last he blew the house down, and ate up the second little Pig.</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img005.jpg" alt="The wolf" title="The wolf" /></div> <p>The third little Pig met a Man with a load of bricks, and said, "Please, Man, give me those bricks to build a house with"; so the Man gave him the bricks, and he built his house with them. So the Wolf came, as he did to the other little Pigs, and said, "Little Pig, little Pig, let me come in."</p> <p>"No, no, by the hair of my chinny chin chin."</p> <p>"Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in."</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-3.jpg" alt="He built his house with bricks" title="He built his house with bricks" /></div> <p><br /></p> <p>Well, he huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and he huffed; but he could <i>not</i> get the house down. When he found that he could not, with all his huffing and puffing, blow the house down, he said, "Little Pig, I know where there is a nice field of turnips."</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img006.jpg" alt="He could not get the house down" title="He could not get the house down" /></div> <p>"Where?" said the little Pig.</p> <p>"Oh, in Mr. Smith's home-field; and if you will be ready to-morrow morning, I will call for you, and we will go together and get some for dinner."</p> <p>"Very well," said the little Pig, "I will be ready. What time do you mean to go?"</p> <p>"Oh, at six o'clock."</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img007.jpg" alt="I will be ready" title="I will be ready" /></div> <p>Well, the little Pig got up at five, and got the turnips and was home again before six. When the Wolf came he said, "Little Pig, are you ready?"</p> <p>"Ready!" said the little Pig, "I have been and come back again, and got a nice pot-full for dinner."</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-4.jpg" alt="A nice pot-full for dinner" title="A nice pot-full for dinner" /></div> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-5.jpg" alt="Pig and turnips" title="Pig and turnips" /></div> <p><br /></p> <p>The Wolf felt very angry at this, but thought that he would be <i>up to</i> the little Pig somehow or other; so he said, "Little Pig, I know where there is a nice apple-tree."</p> <p>"Where?" said the Pig.</p> <p>"Down at Merry-garden," replied the Wolf; "and if you will not deceive me I will come for you, at five o'clock to-morrow, and we will go together and get some apples."</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img008.jpg" alt="The little Pig woke at four" title="The little Pig woke at four" /></div> <p>Well, the little Pig woke at four the next morning, and bustled up, and went off for the apples, hoping to get back before the Wolf came; but he had farther to go, and had to climb the tree, so that just as he was coming down from it, he saw the Wolf coming, which, as you may suppose, frightened him very much. When the Wolf came up he said, "Little Pig, what! are you here before me? Are they nice apples?"</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img009.jpg" alt="He had to climb the tree" title="He had to climb the tree" /></div> <p>"Yes, very," said the little Pig; "I will throw you down one." And he threw it so far that, while the Wolf was gone to pick it up, the little Pig jumped down and ran home.</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-6.jpg" alt="The little pig jumped down" title="The little pig jumped down" /></div> <p><br /></p> <p>The next day the Wolf came again, and said to the little Pig, "Little Pig, there is a Fair in the Town this afternoon: will you go?"</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img010.jpg" alt="The wolf came again" title="The wolf came again" /></div> <p>"Oh, yes," said the Pig, "I will go; what time shall you be ready?"</p> <p>"At three," said the Wolf.</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img011.jpg" alt="The little pig at the fair" title="The little pig at the fair" /></div> <p>So the little Pig went off before the time, as usual, and got to the Fair, and bought a butter churn, and was on his way home with it when he saw the Wolf coming. Then he could not tell what to do. So he got into the churn to hide, and in doing so turned it round, and it began to roll, and rolled down the hill with the Pig inside it, which frightened the Wolf so much that he ran home without going to the Fair.</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-7.jpg" alt="So he got into the churn to hide" title="So he got into the churn to hide" /></div> <p><br /></p> <p>He went to the little Pig's house, and told him how frightened he had been by a great round thing which came down the hill past him.</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img012.jpg" alt="Rolling down the hill" title="Rolling down the hill" /></div> <p>Then the little Pig said, "Hah! I frightened you, did I? I had been to the Fair and bought a butter churn, and when I saw you I got into it, and rolled down the hill."</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img013.jpg" alt="Wolf on the roof" title="Wolf on the roof" /></div> <p>Then the Wolf was very angry indeed, and declared he <i>would</i> eat up the little Pig, and that he would get down the chimney after him.</p> <p><br /></p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgplate-8.jpg" alt="He hung on the pot full of water" title="He hung on the pot full of water" /></div> <p><br /></p> <p>When the little Pig saw what he was about, he hung on the pot full of water, and made up a blazing fire, and, just as the Wolf was coming down, took off the cover of the pot, and in fell the Wolf. And the little Pig put on the cover again in an instant, boiled him up, and ate him for supper, and lived happy ever after.</p> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img014.jpg" alt="And ate him for supper" title="And ate him for supper" /></div> <hr style="width: 65%;" /> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/img015.jpg" alt="He lived happy ever after" title="He lived happy ever after" /></div> <hr style="width: 65%;" /> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imgback-cover.jpg" alt="Back cover" title="Back cover" /></div> <hr style="width: 65%;" /> <div class="figcenter"><ANTIMG src="images/imginside-back.jpg" alt="Inside back" title="Inside back" /></div>
