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…?
