"He's a porker with passion,
a dancing fool, a pig with rhythm-
this breaks every rule,"
said the normally reticent mule.
Now in paperback, Dumpy La Rue, a story of a pig who knew what he wanted to do.
Elizabeth Winthrop's romping, rhyming story and Betsy Lewin's exuberant illustrations will have readers tapping their toes, jumping for joy, and dancing a jig with this passionate pig as they follow him and the barnyard animals from farm to fame.
Dumpy La Rue is a 2001 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
