The Three Little Pigs – an alternative version for Key Stage II Sample Text:

Partner 1:            We’re looking for a house!

Big Bad Wolf 1:  Well, you’ve come to the right place!

(Aside) Duh! Why else would you come to an estate agent?

Whereabouts are you looking?

Partner 1:            Oh, in the country!

Little Pig 1:         It’s our first home

Big Bad Wolf 1:  (Sighing) So you want something at the lower end of the market?

Partner 1:            (Squeaking in alarm) Market? Whoever said anything about a market?

Little Pig 1:         (Reassuringly) It’s just a figure of speech. Meaning

Narrator:             (Interrupting) Cheap!

Partner 1:            Cheap? Oh, that’s all right then.

Big Bad Wolf 1:  Sorry if I confused you

(Aside) How much more dim-witted can you get?

Narrator:             (Aside to audience) Ooh. That bad feeling isn’t getting any better.

Partner 1:            (Aside to Little Pig 1) I’m not sure I like this guy very much.

Little Pig 1:         Oh, don’t be so silly. He’s just doing his job!

(Big Bad Wolf looks through some paperwork and then holds a sheet up and hands it to the couple opposite)

Big Bad Wolf 1:  There you are! Your perfect first home!

Partner 1:            (Spluttering) But, but it’s a haystack!

Big Bad Wolf 1:  Well, it’s the only place within your budget! (Pauses) You don’t suffer from hay fever do you?

Little Pig 1:         Well, no. But is this really the only place you have?

Big Bad Wolf 1:  I’m afraid so. And given its prime location

Partner 1:            In the middle of a field!

Big Bad Wolf 1:  I don’t suppose it will be on the market for long!

Little Pig 1:         Oh dear! Then we should act quickly. We’ll take it!

Partner 1:            (Exclaiming) What? But who wants to live in a haystack?

Big Bad Wolf 1:  Oh, you’d be surprised!

Narrator:             (Aside) Very surprised!

Big Bad Wolf 1:  Everyone’s looking for a haystack to live in, these days!

Partner 1:            Really? It seems rather an odd choice

Big Bad Wolf 1:  (Tapping side of his nose) Not if you are in the know! Take it from me, this is a highly sought-after property! It will be gone by tomorrow!

(Little Pig 1 jumps to his feet)

Little Pig 1:         Right! That decides it, then! We’ll have it!

(Big Bad Wolf stands up and stretches over to shake Little Pig I’s hand)

Big Bad Wolf 1:  A wise investment! You won’t regret it!

Narrator:             (Aside) So I wonder why I have a really bad feeling about it?
