This version of the age-old story is true to my childhood memories. There is the fine threesome of building materials: straw and rope; sticks; and bricks. There are the two repeated formulae: Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin and I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down. I did not remember that all three pigs made it to safety in the brick house nor that the wolf tried to get in through the chimney but got only a scorched tail and ran off. That third pig was able to build quite a house in apparently just one day!
