A clever twist on all the princess fairy tale stories and with an unexpected ending.Large, bright, bold illustrations in a variety of formats, ranging from double page to 3 strips to a page etc, complement the story well and there's lots to look at. The story also ranges from a few words and sentences on a page to longer passages. A princess and a pig are born at the same time to different families, but an accident one day at the palace means the princess falls from the window and the pig is catapulted up into her place. The farmer and king and queen all have a different take on events, but all err along the lines of good and bad fairies, and so the two grow up. The farmer tries to make amends many years later but with interesting results. Originally a picture book this now also available as an easy reader story as well. I want to see more of Jonathan Emmett's work.
