Read this book out loud--right now!--(or ask me to) and be prepared to giggle and guffaw. Fanciful retelling of the Price and the Pauper.

— Summer at Laurel Village

About the Author


Peter Bently has written several award-winning picture books, including King Jack and the Dragon. He lives with his wife, Lucy, and two teenage children in Devon, England.


David Roberts has illustrated many children’s books, including bestsellers Ada Twist, Scientist; Rosie Revere, Engineer; and Iggy Peck, Architect.

Praise For…


"Bently's rhymed reworking of the Mark Twain classic is appropriately silly; young readers should identify with Pignatius' curiosity and mischief. Roberts' elegant yet loopy illustrations—in watercolors, pen, and ink—are a big enhancement."


"This tale will appeal to both younger and older picture book readers and fans of seriously silly titles such as Jon Scieszka’s The True Story of the Three Little Pigs."
