Book Description from the Front Cover FlapThe entertaining adventures of your favorite animals continue in The Year of the Pig! Patty is a little piglet eager to explore the world. Growing up is a learning process, as Patty follows her parents and then gets more advice from her uncles, aunts, and cousins. But being a sensible pig takes practice, especially when Farmer Wu loses his jade ring and needs everyone's help! Now can Patty demonstrate her best qualities when others think they aren't?
Patty's amusing journey to discover her true character will delight children and adults alike-especially new parents, those interested in Asian culture, and readers who enjoy fun-loving stories and fantastic artwork. Second in the annual series, Tales of the Chinese Zodiac, The Year of the Pig features all the charismatic creatures of the Chinese lunar calendar and proves how anyone can make a big difference.
