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.

Review:

"Emmett and Bernatene have concocted a pretty much perfect fractured fairy tale, with wry, Thurberesque prose and gorgeously funny digital drawings that both embrace and wink at the genre."
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"The Princess and the Pig is a story that children ages of 4-8 will delight in: both for its familiarity and its twist. Author Emmett stays true to the humorous and unique style that readers come to expect from his books."NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
