“This funny, fetching tale will bring chuckles—and a lesson—to any child with a tendency to echo Pinkerton’s cries of ‘Me first.’” –Publishers Weekly
Pinkerton Pig will do anything to be first—first down the slide, first in line at the trough-a-teria, first on the bus. His pushy ploys backfire on a Pig Scouts hike when he hears the magic words “Would you care for a sandwich?” Little does he know, he’s being tricked by a sandcastle-dwelling Sandwitch in need of care! How long will Pinkerton be doomed to powder her warty nose? This cheery look at the dangers of piggishness is now part of a fun, 8” x 8” hardcover series about life lessons.
Includes downloadable audio!
