Pretty Princess Pig is getting ready for a big party with all her friends! Princess Pig will have young readers laughing as she spruces up the dining room with a mess of paint and plaster, bakes a cake with gobs of batter and cream, and even digs up flowers with her nose all while (naturally) wearing her flowered party dress. This prissy pig with a heart of gold is sure to keep readers giggling as each page reveals a new mess that she is blithely unaware of.

Princess Pig hustles to get her home ready for her "big tea party," but she can't escape her species' reputation for messiness: "The dining room needs paint and plaster./ Princess Pig paints faster and faster./ She thinks it's fine—but what a disaster!/ Pretty Princess Pig."
