CLEAN CLARENCE by Priscilla & Otto Friedrich


Email this review


Even though one is told repeatedly today that pigs do not prefer dirty sties, grovelling in mud, and scrambling for food in the trough, the illusion- if such it is- still lingers. And this story of one small pig that stood aside, and insisted on being different from his brothers and sisters and keeping out of the trough and the mud, makes very entertaining reading. He becomes a trick pig- and highly paid at that- but eventually he gets bored and homesick, and comes back to the farm- and the trough- and the mud. Louis Slobodkin's pictures in pastels are exactly keyed to the story.
