He washed the horses, ducks and cows
The goats, the cats and dogs.
Everything went dandy...
Until the farmer reached his hogs.
"No hogwash for us today. Pigs love dirt - so go away!"
Farmer's stubborn pigs refuse to be hogwashed, and no matter what he tries, poor Farmer cannot trick them into getting clean! But when several failed attempts leave him stuck in the mud, our determined farmer realizes his hogs may have been on to something all along... sometimes a mud bath is even better!
New York Times best-selling author Karma Wilson's clever rhyming verse will engage parents and kids alike as Jim McMullan's illustrations bring to life these delightfully mischievous pigs with a penchant for all things muddy!
