    “This funny, fetching tale will bring chuckles—and a lesson—to any child with a tendency to echo Pinkerton’s cries of ‘Me first.’” –Publishers Weekly

    Pinkerton Pig will do anything to be first—first down the slide, first in line at the trough-a-teria, first on the bus. His pushy ploys backfire on a Pig Scouts hike when he hears the magic words “Would you care for a sandwich?” Little does he know, he’s being tricked by a sandcastle-dwelling Sandwitch in need of care! How long will Pinkerton be doomed to powder her warty nose? This cheery look at the dangers of piggishness is now part of a fun, 8” x 8” hardcover series about life lessons.

    "Sure to be both popular and useful, this is Lester and Munsinger's best collaboration to date." School Library Journal, Starred review

    "During a beach picnic with the Pig Scouts, Pinkerton's boundless greed sends him ahead of the others to a voice that asks if anyone would care for a sandwich. There he discovers, instead, a witch,and he is obliged to wait on her, do her chores, and re-examine the glories of being first. The droll ink and watercolor illustrations impart the full effect of the witch's messy lifestyle." Horn Book
