What is the theme of The True Story of The Three Little Pigs?

The theme is how you determine the truth is the wolf innocent or are the pigs innocent. Is he telling the truth? Well I say no bcuz in the story the pig knew that the wolf was there to get a cup of sugar and knew about his granny's b-day . How did he know??? Plus I think maybe the wolf is innocent but not telling the really story. So when he blew the frist pigs house down the pig died bcuz of the "sneeze" but what i am thinking is that he could have died for a heart attack bcuz he was scared of the wolf.

Who is involved in the story The Three Little Pigs?

The protagonists are three anthropomorphic pigs, able to talk and use tools, each of which builds his own house. The antagonist is the Big Bad Wolf, also anthropomorphic and with a unnaturally strong set of lungs.

The cautionary tale has each of the three pigs building a house from a different material, with the more durable houses taking the most effort to build. The wolf wishes to eat the pigs, and is able to "huff and puff" and expel air with such force that he "blows the houses down" that are made of straw (first pig) and sticks (second pig). However, the third pig has expended the effort to build a brick house, which can withstand the powerful exhalations of the wolf. The only weak point is the open chimney - but when the wolf tries to use it to enter, he falls into a cooking pot in the fireplace.

In some versions of the story, the first two pigs are eaten by the wolf when their structures fail catastrophically. In others, they both flee to the safety of the third pig's house. In some versions of the story, the wolf survives his scalding and never threatens the pigs again.

The basic moral of the tale is to avoid half-hearted enterprises -- do something well, even if it requires greater effort. Also, the lesson that effort expended today can have great value tomorrow.
