Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Slumgullion, the Pig, wonders why he is being fed good things to by Farmer Jones and why all his family and friends have disappeared. He escapes to the city, gets an education and a job where his success and hard work earn him the envy and ill will of his coworkers. He discovers his mother and other animals disguised as people and keeps his job because the boss is a dog who rally understands. Which is more than this reviewer can say about this strange story that does not seem appropriate for the target audience of kids Ages five to nine.
