Ok, so from my understanding the characters are the three little pigs and the wolf.
And the setting in the story is the village.
Each pig has a main event and the wolfs events are kind of mushed up into one. Since he keeps on doing the same thing if you know what I mean.
The story of the three little pigs is considered a "fable"
The summarized plot is that once all three pigs are sent away to be independent they try to do things there own way. One succeeds and the other two fail. The wolf destroys first two pigs' houses but is not strong enough to ruin the third pig's house.
I think that the moral of this story is that "hard work pays off" because the first two pigs did not put much effort into their houses but the third pig put a lot of thought and effort into making his. Which is why his house thrived and survived the wolf.
I personally think the theme for this story would just be that hen you take your time to do something and put in a lot of effort it will turn out great. It could also be work smarter not harder. As well as just do something right the first time or hard work pays off. There are many themes for this story.
When it comes to English Abolition and women rights, the sentence " Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter", contains an idiom ''out of kilter'' which means out of balance or not properly adjusted, in a state of chaos. The synonym would be ''out of whack''. In this situation we can consider this sentence to be informal.
