Description

Jillian Jiggs has finally cleaned up her room! And after discovering that a jar of buttons she found during the cleanup look just like pigs' noses, Jillian Jiggs embarks on an extravagant pig-making enterprise. She makes pirate pigs, princess pigs, striped pigs and plaid pigs, and plans to sell them for ten cents each. But can Jillian part with her pigs so full of personality?
