Little Yellow Wang-lo
f   Once upon a time there was a
little boy called Little Yellow
Wang-lo. He lived with his father
in a boat which was moored in a
river near a town
His name was Fo-Pa (little
Yellow Wang-lo always called
him Pa) He was a duck merchant and had hundreds of ducks
—white ducks, black ducks, brown
ducks, big ducks, little baby ducks,
and middle-sized ducks — ducks
that said quack, drakes that said
quork, and ducklings that said
queek.  H
Little Yellow Wang-lo had to
get up very early every morning
to call the ducks close round the
houseboat, and then he used to
feed them ; when they had eaten
their breakfasts they all swam
away down the river to look for
little fishes, frogs and other things,
and only came back at night when
it was time to have supper and to
go to bed.
_J m

One hot day Fo-Pa, who was a
very fat little man, called little
Yellow Wang-lo and told him
to put on his Stinday clothes,
take the little boat and row to
land and sell the ducks in the
market; then he was to buy a pig
and bring it back to be roasted for
15 !■  Little Yellow Wang-lo's eyesj
shone with excitement at the idea?
of going on land, and his mouth
watered at the prospect of roast-;
pork for dinner. So he hurried into!
his best coat, hat and shoes, and,!
jumping into the boat, rowed,
quickly  to  land.
He soon sold all his fat ducks!
in one corner of the market.
18   lip  So then he went to another
corner where the pigs were sold,
and after looking at several pigs—
black pigs, white pigs, red pigs,
and spotted pigs—he chose a little
black pig that had white feet; he
tied a string to one of its legs and
started off for home.
23   But the little pig had a will of
his own, and would not go the way
little Yellow Wang-lo wanted. So
little Yellow Wang-lo got a stick
and beat the pig, and the pig
began to pull and pull at the
string, and the more little Wang-
lo beat him the more he squealed
and the faster he ran right through
the town, away from the river out
into the country.
26   ■w-aCTcgBr
L  The poor little boy was not used
to running, and he soon got very
tired and hot; but on piggie ran,
and at last little Yellow Wang-lo
tripped over a stone, the string
broke, and down he fell.
Getting up quickly, he saw
the little pig knocking at a little
gate, and he heard it say:
" Let me in, mother ; let me in."
I'   And a voice said : " Who's
And the little pig answered :
" It's little Wee-wee come home
But the mother said : 1 How am
I to know it is little Wee-wee? I
will open the gate a little crack,
and you must show me if you have
white feet."
34   T^
L  paptp
So the mother pig opened the
gate a very little way, and when
she saw Wee-wee's white feet she
let him in; and little Yellow Wang-
lo, who was close behind, slipped in
also, for he did not dare to go
hortle without the pig for his
father's dinner.
When he got inside he found a
very big fat old mother pig and
seven little black, white, red and
black and white piglets.
39  TpJ They were playing at Catch
who-can, so little Wee-wee ani
little Yellow Wang-lo joined in th|
game until they were splashed all
over from head to foot, and the}!
had torn little Wang-lo's Sunday
coat all to rags and trodden hisj
hat and shoes into the mud.
42     When it was bed-time all the
little pigs went into a little house
which stood in the yard and went
to sleep, but little Yellow Wang-lo
wanted to slip out and go home,
so he only pretended to be asleep.
Soon he heard loud snores, and he
knew the mother pig must be
asleep, so he crept to the door, but
found to his dismay the mother pig
quite blocked up the doorway.
47   ■Hn
He was determined to escape, so
he crawled up her back and up the
door post, and reaching the roof he
knocked off a tile and squeezed
out through the little hole on to
the roof.
50  -fi nHil  As he sat wondering how to get
down an enormous eagle suddenly
swooped down, and catching up
little Yellow Wang-lo in its claws
it rose up, up, up into the air and
flew away.

m*tar  &s       Early the next morning little
Yellow Wang-lo started off to
find the home of the little black
He soon  found the   gate,  and
knocked and asked to be let in ;
but the mother pig said " No," in
a very angry voice.
Then he begged one of the little
pigs to come out to him ; but the
mother pig  shouted   | NO."    At
last he insisted, and this time the
mother pig roared
I        "NO!"
66 Ill
i    But little Wang-lo was not afraid,
and said he would just burn down
their house, for he had promised to
take a pig home to his father, and
if he could not take it alive he
would take it ready roasted.
So little Yellow7 Wang-lo gathered
a lot of sticks and made a hot
crackling fire.
71   When the mother pig and all the
little piglets saw the smoke and
flames they cried out to little
Wang-lo to put out the fire, as
they were very sorry and would
come out and tell him some very
good news.
Seeing how angry he was, they
all fell on their knees and said if
he would spare their lives they
would show him where a lot of
golden money was buried.
74  «wShr,   r
They led the way to a field close
by, and the seven little pigs began
to grub in the ground under a tree,
and soon uncovered a heap of
shining golden coins.

Now little Yellow Wang-lo had
no pockets and no bag, so how
could he carry away some of the
money ? The wise old mother pig
said : | Take off your shirt, little
boy, and tie up the sleeves and
make a bag of it." He quickly
did this, and, thanking the pigs, he
ran off home as fast as he could,
stopping at the market on the way
to buy a nice little fat pig for his
father's dinner.

XII  When Fo-Pa saw what a lot of
money little Yellow Wang-lo had
brought back, and what a good
dinner he was going to have, he
was so pleased that for once he
was quite kind to the little boy.
But, greedy old man, he thought
he would like moregold, so that night
when little Yellow Wang-lo was
fast asleep he took a large sack
and   crept   quietly   away  to   the
87   mem
land and filled his sack so full he
could hardly lift it. When at last
he got it on his back he tripped
and fell into the deep hole he had
made, and the sack fell on the top
of him and completely filled up the
hole, so he never got out again.
90     Little Yellow Wang-lo lived on
in the houseboat, but as he had
plenty of money he never killed or
sold any more ducks, and as the
pigs had been such good friends
to him he never ate Roast Pork
again, but he bought some smart
new clothes.
