About the book

Piper is an adorable, strong-willed little piglet who has made up her mind that she will only eat foods that start with the letter "P", just like her name.  Both parents try to encourage her to try different foods, just five bites please, but Piper puts her hoof down and blatantly refuses.

Finally, totally exasperated, her mom has had enough.  She looses her piggy marbles...

"Fine", she said to Piper.  Don't eat.
but you may not utter a word.."

"But!" replied Piper.


Sounds like mom means business. Piper just sits there. Mom and Dad kept eating. This happens every night that week. Oh my!  It seems it is a battle of the piggy-wills.  Who do you think will win?  

The illustrations are just great.  The expressions of both Piper and her parents enrich the text greatly.  If you are dealing with a pig-headed little food protestor in your family this is the perfect book to share.  I highly recommend this book.
