This Big Book edition is perfect for sharing with groups of children.
This is the story of a Very Hot Day, and a pig who, despite the encouragement of ducks and geese (who later regret it), tries to resist the lure of the water. Pigs, you see, don't swim. But eventually--well--SPLASH! And then all the rest of the farm animals come from their fields to watch and wait, wondering what Farmer Neligan's response will be.
Huge fun, with the kind of repetition that provides multiple opportunities for audience participation. And possibly the only children's book to feature illustrations of an elderly farmer doing the Full Monty (almost). Highly Commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal. (Ages 3 and over) --Lisa Gee
A regular size edition is also available.
