Born on New Year's Day, the piglet Patricia explores the farm with her parents. Growing up is a learning process, as Patty gets advice from her uncles, aunts, and cousins. But being a sensible pig takes practice, as Patty realizes when Farmer Wu loses his jade ring!
Can Patty demonstrate her best qualities when others think they aren't? Bright and dynamic illustrations will appeal to new parents, those interested in Asian culture, and lovers of classic pig tales such as Charlotte's Web and Babe.
Second in the series Tales of the Chinese Zodiac, The Year of the Pig features all the creatures from the Chinese lunar calendar. 2007 was the Year of the Pig.
