Once, there were three pigs who lived in a brick house.

No, not those pigs.

These are the Pygg brothers: James, Marvin, and Lester. And when they get a visit from a wolf named Wilfong, what you think is going to happen doesn’t. And what you think couldn’t possibly happen actually might. But one thing that will definitely happen is that everyone is going to learn how to make wolf pie—and you know what the main ingredient in that is, right? (It’s probably not what you’re thinking.)
