About The Book
Chuckle your way through this easy-to-read illustrated chapter book about a brother and sister who want a pig for a pet—if only they can convince their mother!
Have you ever wanted to own a pig, but worried how to convince your mom it was a fantastic idea?
The latest Aladdin PIX illustrated chapter book tells the tale of a brother and sister who—more than anything—want a pet pig. Getting the pig—Snowflake—isn’t all that hard, but keeping it clean, feeding it healthy snacks, and teaching it manners and tricks, proves to be more than these kids bargained for.
