Second paragraph of third chapter:
But their idyll was soon shattered. One day, along came a big, bad wolf with expansionist ideas. He saw the pigs and grew very hungry in both a physical and ideological sense. When the pigs saw the wolf, they ran into the house of straw. The wolf ran up to the house and banged on the door, shouting, "Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!"
Like a lot of people, I am dismayed that "political correctness" seems to have become a way of demonising the old-fashioned concept of civility. This book therefore could have been rather awful, but in fact it's not too bad - yeah, it's a bit of a one-joke book, but I think the satire is reasonably well-aimed and some of the stories are given rather better endings as a result. You can get it here if you want.

This was my top unread sf book (fairy tales count). Next on that pile is The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.
