Bossy Louisa the pig wants her home to be made spotless. “Tidy up the farm!” she writes to Farmer Giles. And, helped by all the animals in the farmyard, tidy it up he does. But, a farm is a farm and soon the rain puts it all back the way it was. Pretty Louisa is not pleased! She packs her bags and sets off for a tidy life in the city…Will that make her happy? Cheerful illustrations capture this affectionate story about choices.
Love from Louisa by Simon Puttock
A fabulously funny farmyard story, from established author, Simon Puttock, introducing a wonderful new character -- Louisa the letter-writing pig! Dear Farmer Giles, Your farm is mucky and messy. Please clean it up at once! Sincerely, Disgruntled! Louisa the pig is not happy with her living conditions, so she writes an anonymous letter of complaint to Farmer Giles. But no matter what the poor farmer does to make improvements, nothing is ever quite good enough for Louisa, who sends note after note with increasingly extravagant demands. Whatever will Louisa do when the farmer finally gives up and writes a rude message back?
