It is the first day at Mulberry School and everything is going wrong for one shy little pig. Embarrassed and upset by the morning's mishaps, he decides he would rather hide under the mulberry bush than play with the other children. Luckily, he soon makes the wonderful discovery that a friend can turn up in the most unlikely place. . . .
Bringing the same imaginative brilliance to this traditional song that made his Down by the Station a success, Will Hillenbrand has created a reassuring book for anyone who starts school with first-day jitters.
Also features the music and lyrics for the popular nursery song.
WILL HILLENBRAND has written and illustrated many award-winning picture books, including The House That Drac Built by Judy Sierra and his own Down by the Station. He lives in Terrace Park, Ohio.
