POG CLIMBS MOUNT EVEREST

A whimsically silly story about the deliciously logical pig who fast appeared in Pog (1989). It all begins this time when Peg can't get his teapot off the top shelf to make a cup of tea. He can climb up and reach it, but can't climb down with his hands full. Thinking positively, he decides that at least he enjoyed the climb--so he'll make the biggest one of all. And so he does, despite a four-year hike to get there and such setbacks as falling from half way, and three quarters too, before he finally makes it (""Not only have I climbed Mount Everest, I've climbed it TWO AND A QUARTER TIMES!""). Then it's home again, with a truly amusing solution to the tea problem. Haswell's deft touch with this lighthearted nonsense is mirrored in his earnestly comic illustrations, with Peg's nicely varied progress growing funnier with each new page.
