Synopsis

The Princess and the Pig by Jonathan Emmett

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.
