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.

Great great book! Witty funny simple clever book. My girls aged 5&2 like it as much as me and is their favourite for night timevreading. Pictures are great, a fairy tale with a twist!

Excellent for modern readers! No stuffy princesses for us. Very well written, very good idea, very funny too with a good philosophy on life - that being a rich princess won't make you happy but having a loving family and being nice will.

This is one of the funniest story book ever. I bought it after we had borrowed it from the library and the kids loved it so much they didn't want to bring it back. The illustrations are hilarious, as is the story

for my daughter, simply the best ever. we enjoy the story and the pictures again and again!

Quirky, colourful, and too too cute.

I thought this book was about a different kind of princess, a de-stereotyped one because the title came along when browsing for free of cliche and stereotypes books for the little one (and I even read some reviews confirming that in fact, this story was that) but it is not.
The princess ends living happily with her poor parents but married to a nice guy and the pig keeps living a princess life married to a prince.

That's it, there is nothing remarkable about the girl/princess character.

To be fair the book and illustrations are nice enough, it's just the content I don't like as I was expecting something different.

fab book but the quality of the book was poor- had torn pages, needing tape across the whole page- it had been taped but did not meet my idea of 'very good'. The story is wonderful though
