Their mother warns them to build strong houses that can protect them from Big-bottomed Boar, who likes to eat tasty, tender gators for his snack.

But he can't knock over Third Gator's house of stones, so he tries another way in - through the chimney Guess what happens to the Boar's rump after that?
