True North Favourite: The Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs

Beloved character, Jillian Jiggs, is a precocious little girl who crafts a family of pigs while she is supposed to be cleaning her room. She decides to sell her creations to the neighborhood children, until she realizes that this means she also has to part with her new creations. Written completely in rhyming text, this is a favorite in many families, including my own. My girls love this book so much, we made our own Jillian Jiggs' pigs, which we also will not part with.
