Review By JACQUELINE BODNAR
Animals are dressed up on a regular basis and made to appear as something they are not. It may be in a circus, a show or even a photo shoot, as in Swine Divine. In this book, Rosie is a pig who gets a bath and then is taken to a photographer to have some pictures taken.
The problem is, Rosie doesn’t like the way she is being dressed up and posed for those photos. She’s made to wear such things as a bonnet and a tutu, and is even put into a pot of fake flowers and made to balance on a ball. All the while, the photographer continues to snap shots of the pig.
Rosie decides she has had enough and just wants to go back to being a pig in the mud. She breaks free from the photographer, running all the way home. In the end, she is back doing what she loves to do.
