Review: The Pig’s Knickers

We all want to stand out in a crowd. Looking special makes us feel special. It is then that we try doing things we might not normally consider.

Pig is like that. He feels dull and drab until the farmer’s knickers float his way.

He becomes an astonishing performer in his new knickers. Everyone notices and comments, but what will happen to his new found skills when the knickers go missing?

Pig is happy to hear he is special, but can he believe his friends’ kind words? The Pig’s Knickers go much further than the farmyard in Jonathan Emmett’s insightful tale.

Do we really need props to be special? It’s a journey we all take though life, again and again.
