Selfish Pigs [Hardcover]
Andy Riley (Author)
Publication Date: 1 Oct 2009
Back on the farm, the pigs are restless, and pissed. Smoking, pork-eating, overweight and without any s**t to roll in, these pigs aren’t your cuddly, oinking kind of farmyard brother. They are mean and they are angry.
From the genius behind the bestselling BUNNY SUICIDES series comes a hilarious new collection of illustrations that confirms all our worst fears: the pigs won’t take it lying down.
