I wanted the story to be happier. These pigs need to learn some communication skills and that is brought out slightly, but the ending really bummed me out.

Otherwise, it is nice how Allard sneaks those bigger words in there to help expand vocabularies.
Potter Pig is upset when Mona doesn't invite him to her party. He tries many different ways to sneak into her party without success. Finally he phones Mona to ask why she might be mad at him. Mona reveals that her feelings were hurt by a comment Potter Pig shared with a mutual friend of theirs about the size of her feet. The friends make up and Potter Pig is invited to the party, but promptly thrown out again when Mona overhears him making the same hurtful comment about her feet.

A funny read alo
A picture book with "bamboozled" and "fandango" featuring a motorcycle-riding pig, a sash-wearing skunk named Blossom, and a crew of other sassy animals? Love it love it love it.
