Once upon a time there were three little pigs, who left their parents to see the world.
All summer long, they roamed through the woods and over the plains, playing gamesand having fun. None were happier than the three little pigs, and they easily made friends with everyone. Wherever they went, they were given a warm welcome, but as summer drew to a close, theyrealized that all drifting back to their usual jobs, and preparing for winter. Autumn came and it began to rain.
