Summary, etc.:
"Three little pigs": Two pigs are building houses of hay and sticks and scoff at their brother who is building the brick house. But when the wolf comes around and blows their houses down, they run to their brother's house. "The tortoise and the hare": Max Hare and Toby Tortoise are having a foot race. Max has much more style and agility. He pauses for a short nap. When he hears the crowd roar for Toby approaching the finish line, he takes off, but a last-minute sprint, and a long neck, gives Toby the inevitable victory. "The grasshopper and the ants": The ants plan ahead for winter, but the grasshopper enjoys his life and is unprepared for what is to come. "The Pied Piper": When citizens refuse to pay the Pied Piper for ridding their town of rats, the Pied Piper leaves town with all of their children following him. "Prince and the pauper": On the same day, two identical looking boys are born: one is a pauper named Tom and the other is Prince Edvard. As a kid, Tom decides to sneak into the palace garden and meet the prince. They change clothes with each other but are discovered and the real prince is thrown out.
