  • Elya's Wish
  • Pig Decides
  • Elya's Pig
  • Elya was a 15 year old boy when he fell in love with a young girl named Myra. He wished to marry her. But so did Igor Barkov. Who was three times the age of Myra and Elya.
  • Who?
  • Myra's father said that on Myra's birthday, who ever gave him the biggest pig would marry his daughter. This was good for Igor, because he already had a big pig. So Stanley needed to find a pig.
  • Off to America
  • Elya was told by Madame Zeroni to carry a pig up a hill. Then give it a drink from the stream, and also sing it a lullaby. The pig would get a bit heavier each time, and Elya would get stronger. And in return, Elya then would be strong enough to carry Madame Zeroni up the hill.
  • Dirty Rotten Pig Stealing Great Great Grandfather
  • It was finally Myra's 15th birthday.The pig was bigger and Elya was stronger. Myra's father weighed the pigs. They were the exact same. So then Myra chose. She said choose a number between 1 and 10. Igor said 10. Elya said nothing. He said to Myra to keep the pig as a wedding present, and walked off.
  • Elya left Latvia and went to America, where he found another women that he married. They had a child named Stanley Yelnats, which is backwards Stanley Yelnats. But Elya forgot his promise to Madame Zeroni.
  • Madame Zeroni "cursed" the Yelnats generation. So now there are 3 other Stanley Yelnats, and whenever there is trouble they blame it on the dirty rotten pig-stealing great great grandfather, Elya Yelnats, for not carrying Madame Zeroni up the hill.
