Fractured Fairy Tale-Gender flipped

My favorite fairy tale…

The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf becomes:

The Three Little Piggies and  Miss Wolfie


Miss Wolfie began:
Little Piggies, Little Piggies, do let me come through...

And the pigges responded,
We can’t let you in because our house is a zoo!
Things are just scattered here and there!
A messed house needs cleaning, we’re sure you’re aware!

Tired and worn, Miss Wolfie replied,
But I just need to rest...and a little snack too,
I really don’t mind if your home looks like a zoo?

The piggies asserted, strong and alert:
We can assure you, you’re not welcome now!
Just move on down the road for dessert with the cow!

Miss Wolfie called and insisted to the strong little piggies,

I can wait ‘til it’s clean if that is a must,

I’ll even offer to help you all dust!

But the piggies stayed strong not willing to play,
Oh no, Little Miss Wolfie, just be on your way!
A visit is not what we wish for today!

So Wolfie moved on with her tail dragging behind
And hoped that by visiting the cow she would find…

  1. Very cute. You should keep going. The voice is exactly what I'd expect w/ a fairytale in a children's picture book, too.
