David McPhail presents a poetic look at what would happen if pigs took over your house. He has pigs aplenty, and just when he thinks he’s had enough, MORE pigs appear to party and play. The silly situation is resolved and his temper cooled, though, when cleanup time comes and everyone helps. They all then rest their heads to have dreams of pigs galore.
