Illus. in full color. "Mr. Piggott and his sons are a male chauvinist lot
who, outside of yelling for their dinner, don't exercise themselves much around
the house. When Mrs. Piggott finally tires of the endless chores that sandwich
her workday, she leaves the menfolk on their own, with a note saying, 'You are
pigs.' With the cooking and housework untended, they soon turn genuinely
porcine, a transformation Browne foreshadows with pig faces on the wallpaper,
vases, fireplace, phone. As in most of Browne's art, there is more than a touch
of irony and visual humor here. Fun to read aloud."-- "Bulletin, Center for
Children's Books.

Review:

Mr Piggott and his two sons behave like pigs to poor Mrs Piggott until, finally, she walks out. Left to fend for themselves, the male Piggotts undergo some curious changes! This is a hilarious picture book, full of surprises and teasing visual jokes. As with so many of Anthony Browne's books, this story works on several levels with sophisticated pictures combining with a simply told story. Within the story there is a serious message, but it is also a humorous tale that will delight young children and the whole family--and provide some food for thought. --Philippa Reece

Review:

Funny yet thought-provoking. * Daily Telegraph *
