KIRKUS REVIEW

. . . of two pigs, seemingly, and herein lies the tale; while the first is a princess in pigskin, the second is irrevocably a sow. The little pink pig deftly sweeping and baking, demurely marrying the Prince who's discovered her secret, is, as drawn, the chief attraction of the first two-thirds; but when the envious Captain of the Guard, seeing the spell dispelled, decides to find himself a barnyard bride and do likewise, the story takes a turn for the funnier and ends in squealing confusion. Sly-to-wild pantomime perks up an initially sluggish plot.
