Perfect Piggies!

by Sandra Boynton
     
 

Piggies rock! So does Boynton. Through her eyes, her words, her music, and above all her art, we see the world with whimsy and pleasure, appreciating round noses and curly tails, floppy ears and pleasing plumpness. And we’re lucky to give that gift to our youngest children.

A new Boynton on Board book, in the amazing series that has over 11 million

Overview

Piggies rock! So does Boynton. Through her eyes, her words, her music, and above all her art, we see the world with whimsy and pleasure, appreciating round noses and curly tails, floppy ears and pleasing plumpness. And we’re lucky to give that gift to our youngest children.

A new Boynton on Board book, in the amazing series that has over 11 million copies in print, Perfect Piggies! also comes with a song available free via a download from the Workman website. Reminiscent of a cappella swing, it’s a celebration of the homey—of beauty in the eye of the beholder, of sunshine and fresh air, and a place to put up our hooves when the day is done. And, of course, the catching energy and rhythmic language of a beloved original:

We are all perfect piggies and we know what we need. It’s really very simple, very simple indeed: a troughful of food, a place in the sun, and a little bit of comfort when the day is done.

That goes for the rest of us, too.
