Description

Pigs are smarter than you think!

When Megan’s dad tells her not to let the pigs out of their pen, curiosity gets the better of her. Why not? Pigs are too dumb to do anything anyway . . . or are they? Before she knows it, the pigs are wreaking havoc all over her house, all over her school, and all over town. It’s up to her to fgure out how to get them back home. To Megan’s surprise, she discovers the animals are much smarter than she realized.

Editorial Reviews

“Munsch’s story combined with the zany illustrations of Martchenko allow children to indulge in the absurd.”
