SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

 In the story The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, the wolf sets out to tell his version of what really happened the day he blew all the houses down. The wolf claims that he is completely misunderstood. The wolf was just making his granny a birthday cake when he realized he did not have enough sugar. He went to ask his neighbors, the three pigs, to borrow a cup of sugar.

When the wolf gets to the first house, he sneezes and the house falls down. He finds the pig inside, already dead, and decides to eat him. He goes to the second house, and the same thing happens again. The wolf finally gets to the third house and becomes extremely aggravated because the pig is rude to him. He tries to knock down the pig’s door and causes a big scene. That is when the reporters show up and why the wolf looks so bad and is where the original story came from.
