One minute, the narrator of this cleverly rhyming romp is quietly reading. The next minute, pigs descend upon his house in every imaginable getup, by every available means, from every possible place—even “Pigs from France” and “Pigs just in their underpants.” What results is lovable porcine mayhem and a pizza pig-out!

Great vocabulary-building book that's also fun. So this guys's just sitting there reading, minding his own business, when pigs galore invade his house. Needless to say, a party ensues. Silliness aplenty, silliness galore!
