Dog, Duck, Sheep, and the other animals are desperate to find the source of an awful smell in the barn. Finally they decide that the terrible stink is coming from a new baby piglet. The animals do everything they can to rid the pig of his odor. They cover him in hay, wash him in mud, decorate him with flowers, and rub strawberries all over him. But nothing seems to work. Maybe the smell isn't coming from Piglet after all...

Warm, cheerful illustrations and a funny surprise ending make this another perfect read-aloud from the team that created Storm Is Coming!
