KIRKUS REVIEW

Though Henry has everything a pig could want, he knows he won't be happy until he has seen the world--""everything there is to see."" Then one day the farm boy forgets to close the door to his sty and Henry escapes into the big barn, which he mistakes for the world. Henry meets all the creatures whose honks and baas he has been hearing, and then near the big barn door (""the end of the world"" to Henry) he meets the strangest beast of all, with four round legs, hard shiny skin, and a horrible roar when it swallows up the farmer and carries him through the opening at the end of the world. Children can enjoy the little joke on Henry, but this doesn't show them much of the world.
