Princess Pig

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Tim Bowers. After a parade participant's princess sash lands on Pig, she's thrilled. Royalty, however, has its limitations, and when Pig realizes she doesn't want to be a princess anymore, Pony reassures her eloquently: "It's a fine thing to be a pig...If a pig is what you are." Subdued colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations feature a rotund protagonist and her comical farmyard friends.
