Piggybook

By Anthony Browne
Illustrated by Anthony Browne

A stunning new edition of one of Anthony Browne's best-loved picture book stories.

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!

  • "A superb and unforgettably funny (yet ultimately serious) picture book about male chauvinist piggery," The Good Book Guide.
  • "A neatly turned joke and teasing visual puzzles combine to make the most enjoyable anti-sexist tract of all time," The Guardian.
  • One of a range of popular Anthony Browne picture books with new cover designs.
