Description

When cool cousin Reg tells Kay that she can have anything she wants, if she wants it badly enough, Kay is not totally convinced, but she gives it a try. Sure enough, getting her heart’s desire (a freshly-baked acorn pie) proves more than a little frustrating.

Kay learns that you don’t always get what you work hard for, but smiling through the disappointment can produce surprisingly good results! And having really good friends helps, too!

A beautifully illustrated story book for young children, featuring woodland characters from Chantal Bourgonje’s Horace & Nim series, Positive Thinking for Piglets is sure to delight readers of all ages.
