The princess and the pig recently published by PanMacmillan is one of the best stories I have read in years. Forget about fairytales and princess’ dream worlds… this story brings us back to reality and shows how much nicer it is to live a simple life surrounded by loving parents no matter what their wealth is. Absolutely brilliant!
The light-hearted story is also beautifully illustrated. And finally a princess’ story that boys will love too!
Here is the plot:
Can a pig become a princess?
There’s been a dreadful mix-up in the royal nursery. Priscilla the princess has switched places with Pigmella, the farmer’s new piglet! The kindly farmer and his wife believe it’s the work of a good witch. The ill-tempered King and Queen squarely blame a bad witch. It’s the sort of thing that happens all the time in fairy tales! Priscilla grows up on the farm, poor but very happy. Things are less straightforward for a pig princess, but if kissing a frog can work, surely the same applies to pigs . . .
Witty, inventive and bursting with fairy tale fun. From the creators of the award-winning THE SANTA TRAP.
