書籍內容簡介:
Thomas 和Joseph是二隻豬,牠們相當滿意目前的生活方式,可是農場裏的動物認為牠們很髒,於是便想出了很多方法來改變牠們,到底是什麼法子呢?牠們會因此而改變嗎?相當有趣的故事,適合5歲以上兒童閱讀。

Thomas and Joseph are pigs, literally and figuratively, and some of the other farm animals are fed up with their slipshod lifestyle. Two hens, a rabbit, and a duck set out to shape up the slovenly swine. The hens attempt to show the duo how to paint their fence, but when the porkers have difficulty handling a brush, the fowl finish the job themselves. Likewise, the rabbit tries to demonstrate how to gather vegetables in the garden so the two can eat more healthfully. When they trample down everything in sight, the rabbit finishes the harvest single-handedly. And, because the pigs dont seem to understand how to use a shovel, the disdainful duck digs the pond and fills it with water all by himself. Its not until all the work is done that the four smug animals realize that they might have been duped. Humorous watercolor, ink, and colored-pencil illustrations reveal wonderfully expressive critters and capture their contemptuousness to a tee. Their sudden understanding that they have been used is clearly revealed on their chagrined faces. Like the The Little Red Hen in reverse, these pigs dont ask for help but are waited on hand and foot, much to their immense satisfaction. This story is laugh-out-loud funny.–Maryann H.
