This is actually a story within a story, so you have two of everything above.
Introduction: An aunt and her three charges are on the train and the children are being disruptive. She cannot control them.
Problem: It is annoying another passenger, a young bachelor.
Rising Action: The bachelor decides to tell them a story. He expertly fields their questions about why there were no sheep, why there were no flowers in the garden, what color were the pigs, what color was the fox.
Climax: The bachelor finishes and tells the woman that at least he kept them quiet for ten minutes. It solved his problem of annoying children.
Resolution: He leaves the train and thinks that the poor woman is now going to be pestered for improper stories.
SECOND STORY: The bachelors story
Introduction: A good little girl is introduced. She won three medals for being so good and was allowed to roam the Prince's garden. The garden is filled with pigs.
Problem: The wolf comes to eat one of the pigs. But he sees the little girls and chases after her
Rising Action: The wolf searches for her but cannot smell her because of the myrtle trees
Climax: The wolf hears her medals clinking, finds her, and eats her
Resolution: All that is left of her are her shoes, her clothes, and her medals.
