You're A Rude Pig, Bertie!- Claudia Boldt

Bertie is the most vain, rude and outspoken pig you'll ever meet. He can't help offending his friends and pretty soon he doesn't have any left. But a beautiful bunny and a disastrous party all lead Bertie to a startling realization, and a change of heart.

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.


With thanks to Jasmine at Random House for providing me with a review copy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
