Surprise! Surprise!

By Niki Daly
Illustrated by Niki Daly

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

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…?

  • A witty and imaginative new picture book from an internationally acclaimed author-illustrator.
  • Original and lighthearted take on diversity – families are what you make them.
  • Shows that love and affection are what matter most.
