And another spun straw into gold, in ten tales told anew!

The first little pig uses 5 bundles of straw to build a house in the shape of a cylinder, but the wolf blows it down.

Finally, the third little pig smartly gathers 100 strong bricks to build a cube-shaped house. Guess which piggy's house finally withstands the big bad wolf's blows?
