An award-winning story time favorite with a hilarious twist at the end.

When a delicious-looking piglet knocks on Mr. Fox's door, the fox can hardly believe his good luck. It's not every day that dinner just shows up on your doorstep. It must be his lucky day!

But as the piglet is quick to point out, shouldn't the fox give him a bath first? And wouldn't it be best to fatten him up a little, and give him a massage so he'll make for a nice tender roast?

Preparing this feast is a lot of work, but the fox is sure it will be worth it. After all, it's his lucky day. Or is it?

In a funny trickster tale of her own, Kasza keeps readers guessing until the surprise ending when they'll realize it was piglet's lucky day all along.

      I loved this story so so so much!!!!!!!!!! It is a fun fantasy story. It is about a pig who went to a fox's house and pretends to be scared but he really isn't scared. This book is for boys and girls because the story is about animals. I think the message in this story is ''Think before you do something''. I hope you like it!!!!!!!!!!!
