Synopsis

Desert Rose by Alison Jackson

Desert Rose tells the story of pig farmer Rose, who finds herself in a bit of a quandary when she can't get her sure-to-be-prize-winning hog over the creek in time to win first prize at the state fair. She tries to enlist the help of all sorts of varmints, including a coyote, a rattlesnake and a cowboy, but to no avail. It's only after Rose very nicely asks an armadillo that a chain of events is set in motion that's sure to leave everyone happy!

Reviews

'A hilarious, cumulative story that children will love to participate in'

'This is a book that begs to be read aloud ... this hilarious reworking of the old cumulative story of an uncooperative animal and the chain of events needed to get it moving will have your audience rolling in the aisles'
