This bilingual edition is part of the Hmong Translation Initiative coordinated by Motheread.Fatheread – MN, a curriculum-based family literacy program of the Minnesota Humanities Commission (MHC). The purpose of this project is to help Hmong families develop literacy skills in their first language as well as in English. Because of the Moob Ntsuab (Green Mong) and Hmoob Dawb (White Hmong) dialects are different, the translation committee has translated the English text into both. The Hmong text is featured next to the English, and the book’s original artwork is maintained.

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.About the Author:
