Mrs Pig's bulk buy ISBN: 9780333510391
Rayner, Mary
Published by Macmillan
Mrs Pig's ten piglets are a greedy lot. They are always wanting food, but most of all they love ketchup. They put it on everything: morning toast, salad, scrambled eggs. So Mrs Pig thinks up a clever whizz. She buys six huge jars of ketchup, and the piglets get it for lunch, for tea, and for supper. Next morning it gets mixed with their cereal, and they have ketchup sandwiches for lunch. At first it is great fun, but they soon get tired (and hungry) and beg for other sorts of food. This is a cautionary tale as well: piglets used to be white, but turned pink with all that ketchup.....
