It's a Merry Christmas When Pigs Fly

by George Wells and Patsy Trigg

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Santa goes to the barn and discovers someone has taken his reindeer. In each stall is a pig with a funny name. As the time is running short before the big run, Santa steps up to this new challenge and begins training the pigs. Because the pigs are so smart, Santa is able to deliver the toys around the world without a problem. These eight pigs, with funny names, will always be remembered as the pigs that saved Christmas.
Description
It was early December at the North Pole when Santa awakes one morning and goes out to the Reindeer Barn and finds his trusty reindeer are gone. To add to Santa's alrarm he was shocked to find that in each stall, where his famous reindeer once were, were eight pigs. On the door of each stall was a lot of silly names that only pigs would want to be called. Santa knew he must train these pigs or the children of the world would not have a Christmas. So Santa and the piggies worked tirelessly day and night to prepare for their Christms Eve journey. The few adults and handful of children who happened to see Santa that night saw Santa and his sleigh gracefully gliding across the night sky, with eight pigs pulling the sleigh. But those who heard Santa shout encouragement to his eight sleigh-pulling pigs were surprised when he shouted out: Now Pork Chop, Now Fat Back, Now Bacon and Pinky. On Patty Cake, On Piggy, On Ham Bone and you too Stinky.
