All his life, Peddles the pig has done little more than oink and sleep. But in the quirky, clever, and heartwarming new picture book by Elizabeth Rose Stanton, author of Henny, Peddles dreams of something more. After catching a glimpse of a hoedown, all Peddles wants to do is dance. And when he finds the perfect footweara pair of red cowboy bootsinstead of making fun of him, his porcine friends help him stand up tall and make his dreams come true. As the sweet story comes out, we're delighted to celebrate its release at this reading, signing, and book launch party with Stanton.
