Well, the little pig bustled up the next morning at four o’clock, and went off for the pears, hoping to get back before the wolf came. But he had further to go, and had to climb the tree, so that just as he was getting down from it he saw the wolf coming, which, as you may suppose, frightened him very much. When the wolf came up he said, “What! are you here before me? are they nice pears?” “Yes, very,” said the little pig. “I will throw you down one;” and he threw it so far that while the wolf was going to pick it up, the little pig jumped down and ran home.

Love this kind of story telling.
He was a very smart pig – some good evasive tactics!
Just love this!!!
I’m glad you just do!
A vegetarian wolf! And only one peach! 😉
It was that tricky pig!
A pig in a tree! That’s so funny – my book choice today is about a cow in a tree! Crazy farm animals.
Farm animals, who knew? Busy on the farm and busy with their second life as magical animals in fairy tales!
My little dog loves pears, so I guess he inherited that from his wolf ancestors.
Maybe there is something to it – otherwise why pears? Food for thought!
