Pigs Might Fly! Summary

Pigs Might Fly! (Mudpuddle Farm) by Michael Morpurgo

Join the fun on the farm!

A charming story from award-winning author Michael Morpurgo, hilariously illustrated throughout by Shoo Rayner, and perfect for readers of 5 and up.

Two funny farmyard stories for younger readers.

Jigger's Day Off
"Time has come for harvest, Jigger. So I shan't be needing you all day. It's your day off, my dear."

Jigger the sheepdog has just one day off a year. Just one day to chase all those little animals hiding in the corn. But even the best plans go wrong...

And Pigs Might Fly!
"Flying was not nearly as easy as it looked. Pintsize stood up on his back trotters and flapped his front ones - trotters, he thought, would do just as well as wings."

It's a long hot summer, and Pintsize the piglet wonders if it might be cooler in the sky. But when he tries to fly, he annoys just about everyone. It's time he learned his lesson...
