An old woman has bought a little piggy. All she wants to do is get home. but the pig won't budge.

An old woman has bought a little piggy. Finally, a cat agrees to help and sets off a chain of action that finally gets the mischievous piggy headed home. The rollicking rhyme of this cumulative story and its cast of characters will have children chanting along. 28p. Traditional Literature.

She beseeches a dog to nip the reluctant porker, then a stick to beat the dog, a fire to burn the stick and so on, augmenting her plea until her demands are met, sending pig and owner on their way. Litzinger's sprightly text consists of strings of short, imperative sentences whose old-fashioned diction falls pleasingly on the ear: "Stick! stick! poke dog; dog won't nip pig; piggy won't jump over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.
