Anne Miranda’s inventive twist on a classic rhyme tells what happens after a shopper goes “to market, to market, to buy a fat pig.” Back home the pig promptly escapes, and soon the pig’s in the kitchen, the lamb’s on the bed, the cow’s on the couch--and the rest of the animals are wreaking havoc throughout the house.

Starting with the nursery rhyme about buying a fat pig at the market, this tale goes on to describe a series of unruly animals that run amok, evading capture and preventing the narrator from cooking lunch.
