One minute, the narrator of this cleverly rhyming romp is quietly reading. The next minute, pigs descend upon his house in every imaginable getup, by every available means, from every possible place—even “Pigs from France” and “Pigs just in their underpants.” What results is lovable porcine mayhem and a pizza pig-out!

* “McPhail presents a magnificent group of porkers, whose capacity for costumes and capers is truly wondrous . . . Kids will find this a very good book indeed.”—Booklist, starred review
 
* “This is McPhail at his whimsical best.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
