About The Book

This little piggy said, “His eyes how they twinkle!”
This little piggy said, “His nose looks like a cherry.”
This little piggy said, “His cheeks are like roses!”
This little piggy said, “His dimples how merry!"


This fun read-aloud mash-up follows the rhyme and rhythm of the original toe-play nursery rhyme, while also paying irreverent tribute to Clement Clarke Moore’s classic poem “The Night Before Christmas.” 

It’s Christmas Eve, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring . . . except for the Little Piggy, who runs out the door because she knows Santa is coming! Soon all the other piggies are awake, causing enough mischief and mayhem to make this one visit Santa won’t soon forget. 

This Little Piggy's Night Before Chistmas captures all the anticipation and exuberant excitement of the holidays! Full of pure silliness and joy, children will relish in reading about five little piggies who are just as excited about Christmas as they are.

And This Little Piggy Said, “Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!”
