We have all come across someone who is obnoxious and rude, full of their own self importance. Bertie the Pig is a prime example-his lack of manners and respect mean he is friendless and alone. Meeting Ruby the Rabbit influences him- he wants to be her friend yet why would she want to be friends with a rude pig?
You're A Rude Pig, Bertie! is a lesson in social skills, complimented by amusing illustrations. The artwork is a contrast of line drawings and bright blocks of colour.
A moral story which would be great to use with an infant class to teach them the importance of their actions and words.
You're A Rude Pig, Bertie! is out now, published by Jonathan Cape.
