Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The publisher and author of Under a Pig Tree seem to be having communication issues. The author has written a clear, no-nonsense history of figs. But the publisher is sure she meant pigs. After all, whatandrsquo;s the difference between two measly letters? What results is a hilarious illustrated history of pigs, from the earliest times (andldquo;Pigs were presented as andlsquo;medalsandrsquo; to the winners of the first Olympicsandrdquo;) to the present day (andldquo;There is nothing better than enjoying a cup of tea or glass of milk with one of those famous Pig Newtonsandrdquo;). The author, needless to say, is not happy about this andldquo;little mix-upandrdquo; and makes her feelings very clearly knownandmdash;by scrawling all over the book!

With sticky notes from the publisher, angry scribbles from the author, wrinkles, and pages askew, Under a Pig Tree is a playful peek into a book in andldquo;midproductionandrdquo; and a humorous look at the consequences of small mistakes, by industry pro Margie Palatini and up-and-coming talent Chuck Groenink.
