Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439305756, Hardcover)Is Little Pig, Biddle Pig simply too clean and pretty to stoop to mud-pool romps? After all, she is "Sweet as alfalfa / And grand as a queen." Conflicted by her desire to remain pink and glossy or to join those "wiggily wallowers" in the muck, lonely Little Pig grows more and more unhappy. Will she keep her snout up in the air just to avoid the muddy swine, or can this regal piglet get over herself and revel in the "glorious slop"?
David Kirk, creator of the Miss Spider and Little Miss Spider series, as well as the Biddle Books sequence (Little Bird, Biddle Bird, etc.), applies his unusual and striking style to great effect in this tiny tale. Every two-page spread shows a shiny full-bleed image of deliriously happy, filthy pigs or our posy pink heroine on one side, with a rhyming verse on the other, along with various clean critters shying away from the splashing mud. The momentum builds and children will keep turning pages to find out the answer--will she or won't she? And the heavenly sludgy coolness when she finally does succumb to the pleasure (come on, you knew she would)--is almost palpable. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

Biddle pig thinks she is much to pretty to flop in the mud with the other piglets. But she soon finds that being the cleanest one isn't much fun.
