Contrary to the mainstream version of the three little pigs story, the wolf had no interest in eating the pigs. His plan, however less gruesome was still devious; he banished them to desolation behind fortified doors.

Piggy: bedmate to Lazarus

Piggylyt: floor manager robbers den.

Piggylyte: Lab assistant Merseyside morgue.

One can only imagine the chaos that ensued with the words

Lazarus come forth!

Open sesame!

And the knock knock joke by the coroner!

It was all oinks and shrieks.

As for Mr fox his inept spells has him trapped in Piggylyte stone fortress lost forever in fairytale land.

  1. Creative and thoughful. Makes me think of the reworked fairytale from school “The True Story of The Three Little Pigs.” This same writer did several of these types of fairytales. Wish I could remember his name.

      1. Here I did find the children’s book on Amazon. As kids my brothers and other kids I knew, literally begged the teacher to read these. So if you’re a Mom or an Aunt they’re great for kids, but entertaining for adults as well. Here’s the link, to:

        “The True Story Of The Three Little pigs by John Scieszka

        Also, the same writer did a few books in his re-telling of Fairytales. here’s another great one:

        “The Stinky Cheeseeman and Other Fairly Stupid Tales”

        Enjoy 🙂
