The Piggy in the Puddle

The Piggy in the Puddle

by Charlotte Pomerantz Illustrated by James Marshall

See the piggy,
See the puddle,
See the muddy little puddle.
See the piggy in the middle
Of the muddy little puddle.

And so begins this rollicking story-in-verse about a determined young pig who absolutely refuses to leave her mud puddle, much to the dismay of her family!

Charlotte Pomerantz's tongue-twisting nonsense verse, made even more exuberantly hilarious by James Marshall's illustrations, is sure to delight both children and adults.
