Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735811423, Paperback)

Sticks and stones will break your bones, and names will sometimes hurt you! This charming circular story demonstrated how unkind words can damage self-esteem and kind ones restore it. It all starts when Snail calls Pig fat. "I like being big and round," Pig replies. "I'm happy just the way I am." But Snail's remarks do upset Pig, so much that when she meets Rabbit she insults him. He is turn insults Dog; Dog insults spider; Spider insults Goose; and, coming full circle, Goose insults Snail. Since Snail started it all, it's up to him to set things right, initiating a similar cycle of apologies.

By calling Pig fat, Snail starts a chain of insults among the other animals that eventually catches up with him and convinces him that each animal is right in liking himself just the way he is.
