“When it comes time for the three little wolves to go out into the world and build themselves a house, their mother warns them to beware the big bad pig. But the little wolves’ increasingly sturdy dwellings are no match for the persistent porker, who has more up his sleeve than huffing and puffing. It takes a chance encounter with a flamingo pushing a wheelbarrow full of flowers to provide a surprising and satisfying solution to the little wolves’ housing crisis.”

(Cuando llega el momento para los tres pequeños lobos de salir al mundo y construir ellos mismos una casa, su madre les advierte que tengan cuidado con el gran cerdo malo. Pero aunque los pequeños lobos construyen viviendas cada vez más resistentes estas no son rival para el persistente porcino, que tiene más recursos en la manga que jadear y resoplar. Será necesario un encuentro casual con un flamenco empujando una carretilla de flores para proporcionar una solución sorprendente y satisfactoria a la crisis de vivienda de los lobeznos.)
