When the ferocious beast with the polka-dot hide catches a piglet, he has a tough decision to make: whether to have him on whole wheat or rye bread. But the clever piglet saves his own life when he convinces the beast that the seams on his polka-dot hide are about to burst. To save his hide, the beast agrees to let the piglet fix all of his meals. “You have to eat the foods you like the least,” the piglet tells the beast. Soon, prunes and hay and pine needles make the beast too sick to move, and the piglet sees his chance for escape. But can he leave the poor beast lying in agony? Betty Paraskevas’ delightful story introduces readers to the popular characters seen on Nickelodeon’s Maggie and the Ferocious Beast. John McDonough’s crisp narration enhances a tale that young listeners will like better than bacon.
