If you share your treats with Morris he will stomp on them with his beastly feet. STOMP STOMP STOMP. Naughty Morris.

Are you daring enough to befriend this dastardly bunch of boars?

Meet Wild Boars! Or maybe you better not. After all, they are dirty and smelly, bad-tempered and rude. They might try to fool you, but don't worry, you won't believe them. There's no such thing as a nice wild boar. Hmmm.

This insufferable gang of boars will mess up your house and set a very bad example indeed. If you are foolish enough to fall in love with them, they will break your heart (and most of your furniture). So don't say we didn't warn you!

Bores, they are not.”—Booklist, Starred Review “Introduce this book at storytime and be prepared for multiple requests for repeats.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, Starred Review “Bracingly ill-mannered, the boars who run amok in this clever picture book make kid friends seem . . . tame.”—People, “Fab Finds for Kids” “Bad behavior is utterly unacceptable, of course—but it sure makes for a terrific spectator sport.”—Publishers Weekly

“Young readers will be delighted to meet this fearsome foursome.”—Kirkus Reviews
