I'M NOT A LITTLE PIG

I'M NOT A LITTLE PIG
(Says Little Pig)

Little Pig believed that if he could stand up on his two back legs he'd look like a person, so he kept practicing.  He had escaped from the farm and later got to a forest where he came upon a pile of things someone (a real pig!) had thrown out.

It was there that Little Pig got to thinking:  Well, it hasn't been easy for me to stand up, I need to train more.  When they see me, they still think I'm one of those pinkish animals.  And I'm not... I am not a little pig!

Little Pig still thought he could change if he worked hard at it.  That's why in the Spring he began to climb mountains. Meanwhile, he practiced and practiced the ma-me-mi-mo-mu. He realized one day he only knew how to say:  "I would like an ice cream". But, of course... he wasn't going to convince people that he wasn't a little pig with just that...
