Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Wendell Fultz's mother is tired of telling him to clean his room; she says that from now on it's his responsibility. When he finds a pig in the room one afternoon he's excited. Now he can live the way he wants to. More pigs come and they play Monopoly until late at night and leave everything on the floor. But when Wendell finds hoofprints on his posters and his baseball cards chewed up, it's TOO MUCH. He asks his mother for help, and she hands him a broom. Wendell organizes his troops-many hooves make light work-and when the room is clean, the pigs call their farmer to come and get them.
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
This story touches a familiar chord in all who live with mess. Wendell Fultz's room is so full of clutter that Mom calls it a 'pigsty.' Moms are always right. One day Wendell finds a pig reading a comic book on his bed. Soon a herd of pigs appears causing more mess and damaging his favorite comic books and baseball cards. Enough! Time to clean! The pigs are scene-stealers. Invite them to your house next. Who knows?
