Am I Pig Enough for You Yet?: Voices of the Barnyard

Am I Pig Enough for You Yet?: Voices of the Barnyard

by Valerie Shaff, Roy Blount Jr.




Am I pig
Enough for you yet?
The more I gorge,
The more gorgeous I'll get.

We have all gazed at sheep and cows in fields by the side of the road. And we have seen them gazing back. What are they thinking? And what about those funny looks we get from horses, pigs, geese, ducks, llamas, and, yes, chickens? This book opens up the inner lives of livestock, revealing their concerns about relationships, food-chain issues, and why people see cows and want to go "Mooo."

Valerie Shaff and Roy Blount Jr. have created another classic — combining incomparable photographs with Blount's brilliant verse to give readers rare insight into the weird world of the denizens of the barnyard.

In Texas, Ohio, Massachusetts,
Here's what is for certain.
If you cross paths with an angry goose, it's
Your butt will be hurtin'.
