Praise For The Prince and the Porker

"Bently's rhymed reworking of the Mark Twain classic is appropriately silly; young readers should identify with Pignatius' curiosity and mischief. Roberts' elegant yet loopy illustrations—in watercolors, pen, and ink—are a big enhancement."

— Kirkus

"This tale will appeal to both younger and older picture book readers and fans of seriously silly titles such as Jon Scieszka’s The True Story of the Three Little Pigs."

— School Library Journal
