  • Lucy and the Pig frontispiece
  • frontispiece detail.
  • A pig arrived in the mail one day....
  • ...In fact the pig was right in the middle of a dream....
  • ....So she plunked her three best coins into the slot on the piggy’s back and she snuck away again....
  • “Oh nettles”, said the pig, “I’m clinking!” So down it went, wheeee clink-clink, to see what to do about it.
  • It hadn’t wandered far when it met a giraffe.
  • The pig explained about the kerplunks and the clinks.
  • Then the giraffe shone a flashlight down the pig’s slot....
  • ...And it was not long then before the three coins tumbled out onto the floor.

  • "Hooray," they cried.
  • "Rotten things, plugs."
  • “Band-aids work like magic,”said the giraffe. ”Now get some rest.”
  • She peeked under the band-aid....
  • “Ah. Silly pig," she said, "that is your slot...."
  • "What did you do with your plug?" she asked.
  • "If you had a jar of jam," it said hopefully....
  • "with just a little bit left....."
  • End page. "Cookie, anyone?"
  • A preview from Book 2....the pig goes outside.
