What's Dumpy La Rue About

Publisher Summary

Everyone told Dumpy La Rue that pigs don’t dance. But Dumpy knew better. He closed his eyes and twirled to the tune inside his head. The whole barnyard gathered around, and soon hooves were stomping, wings were flapping, and feet were stamping out a beat. Elizabeth Winthrop’s romping, rhyming story and Betsy Lewin’s exuberant illustrations will have readers tapping their toes, jumping for joy, and dancing a jig with this passionate pig.
