Few months later the wolf was revolted by their behaviour, he decided to punish the three bad little pigs for their noisy parties.  With the other neighbours he went to the little pigs’ houses.

« If you stop the noise, you won’t have any problems » the wolf explained.

Once upon a time, there was a giant who lived at the top of a huge beanstalk, above the clouds. He wondered what human civilization was like. With the time, this dream took importance for him and it had made him full of ambitions. He wanted to discover those people.

To his surprise, a human decided to climb the beanstalk because he wanted to know what was at the top of it. As he arrived at the top, he met the giant and he was amazed by him. They were both amazed by each other: The giant did not imagine that humans were so small. When the human arrived, the giant asked him where he was from, the human answered that he was a human from Earth.

They started to talk together, and, to his highest pleasure, the giant asked a lot of questions to the human. He asked him how their mentality was, if they were all together, if they lived in a peaceful world. The Human started to talk about the different events that had made them what they are now like the two world wars. After this, he talked about poverty in Africa and a lot of things that concerned the humans.

The giant had no idea about the humans and when he learnt this, he was so disappointed. He thought that humans lived in community and helped each other. At the end of the debate, the human proposed the giant to go with him to see the human civilization. The giant answered that he didn’t want to discover the human civilization anymore because what he learnt about humans had changed his opinion about them. The human went back to the earth alone and the giant stayed alone, with a great feeling of sadness.
