There's been a terrible mix-up in the royal nursery. Priscilla the princess has accidentally switched places with Pigmella, the farmer's new piglet. Kissing a frog has done wonders before, but will it work for a pig? A fun twist to many classic fairy tales!

This book is humorous tale about a princess and pig who are switched at birth. They discover that its okay to just be themselves. I think elementary students would really enjoy this book because it is not a typical fairytale. ( )

This is a witty, silly story that entertained the children and me. This story could be used to illustrate how your past knowledge affects your current beliefs.

This is an excellent book to introduce text-to-text connections. It tells the story of a princess and a pig that get switched at birth, and makes several literal references to other well-known fairytales. This book was engaging, humorous, and easy to follow. I will definitely include this book in my classroom library and use as a mentor text through several different lessons.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802723349, Hardcover)

There's been a terrible mix-up in the royal nursery. Priscilla the princess has accidentally switched places with Pigmella, the farmer's new piglet. The kindly farmer and his wife believe it's the work of a good witch, while the ill-tempered king and queen blame the bad witch-after all, this happens in fairy tales all the time! While Priscilla grows up on the farm, poor yet very happy, things don't turn out quite so well for Pigmella. Kissing a frog has done wonders before, but will it work for a pig?


Sure to hog all the attention, this story's frequent nods to well-known fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty, The Frog Princess, and Thumbelina-plus hilarious illustrations-will delight readers of any age.
