Publisher's Summary

2007 is the Year of the Pig! Born on New Year's Day, the piglet Patricia explores the farm with her parents and Farmer Wu. Growing up is a learning process, as Patty gets advice from her uncles, aunts, and cousins. But being a sensible pig takes practice, as Patty realizes when Farmer Wu loses his jade ring! Can Patty demonstrate her best qualities when others think they aren't?

Patty's amusing journey to appreciate her true nature will delight children and adults alike. Bright and dynamic illustrations will appeal to new parents, those interested in Asian culture, and lovers of classic pig tales. The Year of the Pig is the second in the annual series Tales of the Chinese Zodiac.
