This is a very sweet book told in rhyme about a piglet that won a blue ribbon being clean and 'pretty' and #1. He misses out on playing with everyone else not wanting to get in the mud and get dirty. He realizes in the end that being alone isn't as much fun as being with your friends. My 2 year old granddaughter and I really enjoyed reading this.
David Kirk is the creator of children's books that follow the character Miss Spider. Before writing books, he made colorful toys that were sold in hand-painted boxes. He was urged to write children's books when his toys caught the interest of a book packager. It wasn't difficult to figure out what he would use as characters in his stories: his daughter, Violet, had a liking for bugs.More about David Kirk...
