There's A Book

The Princess and the Pig by Jonathan Emmett and Illustrated by Poly Bernatene

A rollicking story that “porks” fun at everyone’s favorite fairy tales

There’s been a terrible mix-up in the royal nursery. Priscilla the princess has accidentally switched places with Pigmella, the farmer’s new piglet. The kindly farmer and his wife believe it’s the work of a good witch, while the ill-tempered king and queen blame the bad witch-after all, this happens in fairy tales all the time! While Priscilla grows up on the farm, poor yet very happy, things don’t turn out quite so well for Pigmella. Kissing a frog has done wonders before, but will it work for a pig?

Sure to hog all the attention, this story’s frequent nods to well-known fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty, The Frog Princess, and Thumbelina-plus hilarious illustrations-will delight readers of any age.

This is simply adorable and quite hilarious! Both Turkeybird and Littlebug love this one. Make sure to check out both the author, Jonathan Emmett, and the illustrator, Poly Bernatene, websites as they’re both spectacular!

An interesting fact about the illustrator Poly Bernatene, he’s also the illustrator for The Books of Elsewhere series by Jacqueline West:
