The Pig in a Wig

(1997)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Peggoty loves to admire her reflection in the duck pond. She believes she is the prettiest, pinkest, most perfect pig in all the world. But one day, the woolly lambs--too young to have learned manners--tease her about her hairless head and body. A distressed Peggoty turns to the other barnyard animals for reassurance, but none can console her. A desperate attempt to fashion a wig for herself proves disastrous and humiliating. Only a chance eavesdropping on the farmer's wife cooing over her bald baby restores Peggoty's faith in her appearance.

Young readers will be heartened by Peggoty's tenaciousness and spirit in this amusing and reaffirming story that features wonderfully appealing characters colorfully brought to life in illustrator Paul Hess s bold images.
