“Christelow’s watercolor and pen-and-ink cartoon-like illustrations do a fabulous job of reinforcing the mood and action of the text… A sure hit.”

This story continues the tale of Bert, Ethel and their wayward pigs. It starts where the other book ends. (Remember the mysterious postcard from Florida?)
Now Bert and Ethel have packed their bags, and are heading south for the Sunshine State. Ethel wants to sit on the beach and dance under the stars, but Bert has something else in mind. He’s determined to find his postcard-writing runaway pigs and bring them home!
Are there pigs hiding under those beach umbrellas, or rocking and rolling to the tunes of the Squealers? Read the book and discover for yourself just who is hamming it up under the stars.
(And take a close look at the picture below!)
