Publisher Comments:

Piggies rock! So does Boynton. Through her eyes, her words, her music, and above all her art, we see the world with whimsy and pleasure, appreciating round noses and curly tails, floppy ears and pleasing plumpness. And we're lucky to give that gift to our youngest children.

A new Boynton on Board book, in the amazing series that has over 11 million copies in print, Perfect Piggies! also comes with a song available free via a download from the Workman website. Reminiscent of a cappella swing, it's a celebration of the homey--of beauty in the eye of the beholder, of sunshine and fresh air, and a place to put up our hooves when the day is done. And, of course, the catching energy and rhythmic language of a beloved original:

We are all perfect piggies and we know what we need. It's really very simple, very simple indeed: a troughful of food, a place in the sun, and a little bit of comfort when the day is done.

That goes for the rest of us, too.

About the Author

Sandra Boynton has been a bestselling author for 25 years. She's written the New York Times bestseller Chocolate: The Consuming Passion, the national (and New York Times) bestselling musical for the whole family, Philadelphia Chickens, the phenomenally successful Boynton on Board series (led by Barnyard Dance!), and the one-of-a-kind Grunt, the sublime collection of Pigoroian chant. All told, her kids books have over 30 million copies in print, a number that will already be out-of-date when you read this. She lives with her family in western Connecticut.

This is Sandra Boynton at her BEST!! A favorite of my grandkids for sure. Leave it to Sandra Boynton to teach them the word "dentafrice". Also, if this book isnt cool enough on its own, you can download a free track of the book being sung by an accapella group. (the Snouter Limits) The little ones dance and sing along (or try their best) EVERY time. Its just GREAT fun. I cant recommend it enough!!
