Piglette

Illustrated by Eva Byrne
Will a pristine piglet find perfection in Paris?

Piglette can be a bit particular by her siblings' standards. She always wants everything to be perfect. While her many brothers and sisters like rolling in the mud, Piglette prefers pampering in a mud bath. While her siblings eat slop, Piglette prefers pastries. But what she's most passionate about is flowers. She loves to smell the lilies and lilacs in the pasture. So Piglette decides her precise nose is destined for the perfume shops of Paris!

But Piglette soon realizes that there's nothing more precious than the pleasant scents of home, and she finds a way to bring a little Parisian perfection back where she belongs. Debut author Kateyln Aronson and #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator Eva Byrne have created an unforgettable, playful piglet who stays true to herself and the message that home is where the heart is.
Katelyn Aronson worked as a children's bookseller in California until she was called abroad to Europe. Today, she has found her own kind of perfection, teaching in Switzerland and living in France. Piglette is her first book.

Eva Byrne is an artist who specializes in fashion illustration and children's books. She is the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Princesses Wear Pants and Princesses Save the World by Savannah Guthrie and Allison Oppenheim and the author and illustrator of Along Came Coco. She lives in the Irish countryside.
