"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.
