A Mud Pie for Mother by Scott Beck (2003)



Hardcover in Very Good (VG) condition. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details.

"Dolly Parton's Imagination Library" Edition. 

The creator of Pepito the Brave, that "genuine poster-bird for pluckiness"(Publishers Weekly), returns with another small but determined hero, Little Pig.

It's Mother Pig's birthday, and her son has sneaked out of the pen to find a gift before she wakes up. Little Pig spies a great one-a pretty flower-but just as he is about to pluck it, a bee buzzes up and begs him not to. Little Pig cheerfully leaves the flower and searches for another gift, but each one he sees-fresh hay, shiny seeds, and even a lump of dirt-belongs to someone else in the farmyard. Little Pig's basket is empty, but his generous heart will lead him to the perfect present.

Using few words and crayon-bright colors, Scott Beck has crafted another sweet, spare picture book for preschoolers.
