A playful take on the traditional 'This Little Piggy' nursery rhyme that will delight young children; perfect for parents to read aloud.

This little piggy went dancing

This little piggy stayed home

This little piggy had porridge

This little piggy had none

And this little piggy went hop, hop, hop, all the way home.

The little pigs we know so well from the familiar nursery rhyme now do all sorts of unexpected things - and the ones who stay home or have none are not forlorn or missing out! Keep your eye on your favourite piggy as it tries out different activities throughout the book. And watch them hula, jump, skip, zoom and whiz until the last little piggy runs 'wee wee wee all the way home'!

    I love the concept of this book, modern take on the classic nursery rhymes/ stories are always appealing for children and parents alike. I'd like to see an abridged version released in board book.
