Once upon a time she found a little crooked sixpence and didn't know how to spent them. But it didn't take so much time and she decided to buy a little pig. As she was coming home, she came to a stile but the piggy wouldn't go over the stile and stopped. She asked a dog, a stick, and so and so in order to move the little pig.
