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!


Anthony Browne, author and illustrator of this book, has written a story about gender roles that is insightful and sends a message to both males and females. Originally published in 1986, this message is still relevant today.
