Rendered a "collector's item" by Random House (aka out of print) I have the last 25 copies in my possession which can be purchased in my store. Each copy bought from my store can be inscribed, signed and includes a drawing of a girl who longs to be a pig.
Why do animals get to misbehave, while humans have to act so prim and proper all the time? From the New York Times bestselling author comes a book about manners, all from the point-of-view of a little girl. In her refreshingly subversive world, monkeys must always use their fingers when they eat or get in trouble, elephants are encouraged to squirt and splatter everywhere, and pig parents ask their children to get muddy before they go to bed. Of course, if you're a pig, you smell, and that’s not nice. Still, the girl can see that behaving like an animal could be fun. . . .
About the Author, Sally Lloyd-Jones
Sally Lloyd-Jones is a Brit who came to the US in 1989 "just for a year." She's still here.
Born in Kampala, Uganda, raised in East, and West Africa and at a boarding school in the New Forest, the first book she ever remembers reading all the way through was THE COMPLETE NONSENSE by Edward Lear. Things have not been the same since.
