There's been a terrible mix-up in the royal nursery. Priscilla the princess has accidentally switched places with Pigmella, the farmer's new piglet. The kindly farmer and his wife believe it's the work of a good witch, while the ill-tempered King and Queen blame the bad witch after all, this happens in fairy tales all the time Priscilla grows up on the farm, poor yet very happy, but things don't work out quite as readily for a Pigmella. Kissing a frog has worked wonders before, but will it work for a pig?

Sure to hog all the attention, this story's frequent nods to a variety of well-known fairy tales such as "Sleeping Beauty," "The Frog" "Princess," and "Thumbelina," and hilarious illustrations will delight readers of any age.
