Will a pristine piglet find perfection in Paris?
Piglette can be a bit particular by her siblings’ standards. She always wants everything to be perfect. While her many brothers and sisters like rolling in the mud, Piglette prefers pampering in a mud bath. While her siblings eat slop, Piglette prefers pastries. But what she’s most passionate about is flowers. She loves to smell the lilies and lilacs in the pasture. So Piglette decides her precise nose is destined for the perfume shops of Paris!
But Piglette soon realizes that there’s nothing more precious than the pleasant scents of home, and she finds a way to bring a little Parisian perfection back where she belongs. Debut author Kateyln Aronson and #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator Eva Byrne have created an unforgettable, playful piglet who stays true to herself and the message that home is where the heart is.
Full disclosure: I'm a huge Francophile, so this book scores a lot of points with me just for featuring Paris. But even beyond the connection to a place I love, it's a darling book with a fun little character. As a bonus, the overall message is sweet too.
"Accompanied by pleasant, warm cartoons depicting family, friendship, and a little adventure, Piglette’s story is a joyful one that makes for an amusing read-aloud. A sweet, lighthearted tale of a piglet discovering where she belongs."
“Hand this crowd-pleaser to fans of Ian Falconer’s Olivia and Jane O’Connor’s Fancy Nancy.”
Katelyn Aronson worked as a children’s bookseller in California until she was called abroad to Europe. Today, she has found her own kind of perfection, teaching in Switzerland and living in France. Piglette is her first book.
