"I know", thought the pig. "I shall become an EXTRAORDINARY pig. I shall see the BEST in EVERYONE and EVERYTHING. I shall become THE PIG of HAPPINESS!" A charmingly illustrated allegory about a pig who got extremely happy and decided to spread joy after years of wallowing…The Pig of Happiness is a story about the metamorphosis of a grumbling farmyard animal into a beautiful smiling pig, who spread happiness to all his farmyard friends. Positively oozing with the delight of being joyful, this gently reminds us all to 'get happy'. Featuring animals as well as distinctly animalistic humans, Edward Monkton books are highly collectable and stylish gift books -- at home on a coffee table, in the bathroom, in quiet places, and perfect for giving to a loved one or for keeping for yourself. Each book in this new series is an original fable, charmingly illustrated,and created especially for this brand-new series of gift books. Hand-lettered in the same style as the Edward Monkton cards by the Really Good company, the books are wonderfully packaged with the utmost style and attention to detail to make these hugely desirable objects and perfect gifts for special occasions. These creations prove there is a universal and enduring audience for tales that inspire and touch hearts. Their philosophy is to heal, unite, amuse and delight in equal measures. 'May his JOYFUL SMILE remind us how much there is to be happy about.'
Edward Monkton is a relative of Purple Ronnie, the other well-known creation of Giles Andreae. The three of them live together, philosophising and generally at peace with themselves and the world.
