Hog Heaven

The owner of this book didn't find the surprise ending a bit funny.
I, on the other hand, think it's a stitch. I will now dedicate every inch of my being towards finding more copies to add to my collection.

Thanks to the Blue Rose Girls for the link.

I admit readily that I was a big pig when I was nursing (in appetite and size). I'm not sure who loses weight when they nurse, as the childbirth books promise you, but it's not Italian women.

Ha ha, hilarious! My sister's going to die that you linked to the post. BTW, she's 7 months pregnant right now, which is pretty much the reason that the pig comment didn't sit well with her.

I love Clare Beaton's fabric illustrations! I don't think I really twigged that mommy was the biggest pig when I read it, I was just enjoying the pictures. Throwing it away was pretty pathetic of the owner, I must say.

I don't get it. I looked at the pictures and they were darling. Of course the mommy pig is the biggest pig! I'm bigger than my kids too (at least for now).

Reading it as "my human mommy is a pig" seems a bit of a stretch. At this age kids are comparing sizes not diets.

From the comments I expected the last picture to be of an overweight human stuffing cookies down her throat!
