Being a Pig is Nice: A Child’s Eye-View of Manners

by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Dan Krall

When you’re a kid your mom is always telling you make sure you wash your hands, and tidy up after you. But what if you were … a pig?

Being tidy and clean would not be polite at all… It would be Completely Unacceptable Behavior. And what if you were a snail? Or an elephant? Or a monkey?
