He washed the horses, ducks and cows
The goats, the cats and dogs.
Everything went dandy...
Until the farmer reached his hogs.

"No hogwash for us today. Pigs love dirt - so go away!"

Farmer's stubborn pigs refuse to be hogwashed, and no matter what he tries, poor Farmer cannot trick them into getting clean! But when several failed attempts leave him stuck in the mud, our determined farmer realizes his hogs may have been on to something all along... sometimes a mud bath is even better!

New York Times best-selling author Karma Wilson's clever rhyming verse will engage parents and kids alike as Jim McMullan's illustrations bring to life these delightfully mischievous pigs with a penchant for all things muddy!

Review: Hogwash!

User Review  - Erica Rhodes - Goodreads

This is a fantastic read about some super bright pigs that constantly outsmart the farmer because they don't want to take a bath. The rhyming was fun and the kids absolutely loved the ending. It's hard to find a book all four of my kids can enjoy together. Read full review

Review: Hogwash!

User Review  - Gps - Goodreads

a fun story, and the rhyming story line is well done. each page brings a smile to your face, as you wonder what the farmer will do next to get his pigs to bathe, and they rebuff his efforts in imaginative poetry. enjoy! especially for children reluctant to take a bath. Read full review
