Illus. in full color. Mr. Piggott and his sons are a male chauvinist lot
who, outside of yelling for their dinner, don't exercise themselves much around
the house. When Mrs. Piggott finally tires of the endless chores that sandwich
her workday, she leaves the menfolk on their own, with a note saying, 'You are
pigs.' With the cooking and housework untended, they soon turn genuinely
porcine, a transformation Browne foreshadows with pig faces on the wallpaper,
vases, fireplace, phone. As in most of Browne's art, there is more than a touch
of irony and visual humor here. Fun to read aloud.-- Bulletin, Center for
Children's Books.
