Product Overview

"Mr. Piggott and his sons are a male chauvinist lot who, outside of yelling for their dinner, don't exercise themselves much around the house. When Mrs. Piggott finally tires of the endless chores . . . she leaves the menfolk on their own, with a note saying, 'You are pigs.' . . . As in most of Browne's art, there is more than a touch of irony and visual humor here. Fun to read aloud".--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.rade Book in the Field of Social Studies.

From the Publisher
Annotation Mr. Piggott and his sons are so sloppy they turn--literally--into pigs. Lots of irony and visual humor abound in this parable of modern life.
Editors Note One day, after cooking and cleaning for her oblivious husband and two sons, Mrs. Piggott disappears, and the three remaining family members turn into pigs until they change their swinish ways.
