Local Description

Sasha's Review: Pig just wants to enjoy a nice, hot bath in David Elliot's new, minimally worded picture book. But Pig isn't the only one with the same idea. First Sheep, then Cow and now Donkey?! This tub is getting crowded! Will Pig ever get to enjoy the bath? Maybe, with the use of some ... unorthodox ... tactics. Elliot's expressive illustrations will have kids rolling about with laughter as Pig hatches a dastardly plan. Parents beware - bath-time might be about to become a bit more fragrant! Recommended ages? All

Reviews

"The character of this pig is irresistible: his rich inner life and thoughts are written all over his face! The loud friends pay no attention but he finds a time-honoured way to get them out of the bath." - Julia Marshall, Publisher
