Surprise! Surprise!

 
By Niki Daly

A hilarious picture book about acceptance, with lively illustrations and a twist at the end.

Mrs Tati wants a baby and when no baby appears, Mr Tati comes up with a jaunty solution! He brings his wife a sweet little piglet with a rosy face and curly tail.

How Mr and Mrs Tati love their piggy baby, but should he be brought up as a boy or a pig, and what will happen if he goes to school?

And could this tale have one more twist at the end of it…?
