Meet Boris, Morris, Horace and Doris, four rude, smelly, bad tempered boars. Never, ever let them into your home - Horace will soak in the toilet for hours, he'll eat your soap, clip his toenail in bed and be rude to your pets! As for Doris, she has never been good, not for one single second, not once, not ever! - you have been warned. This is a tale of truly terrible manners with a very clear message - there is no such thing as a nice wild boar!show more

Review quote

"Bitingly funny and deeply satisfying. . . . Let's hope for more from this disgustingly delightful group. Wild, they may be. Bores, they are not."--"Booklist", Starred Review "Introduce this book at storytime and be prepared for multiple requests for repeats."--"The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books", Starred Review "Bracingly ill-mannered, the boars who run amok in this clever picture book make kid friends seem . . . tame."--"People", "Fab Finds for Kids" "Bad behavior is utterly unacceptable, of course--but it sure makes for a terrific spectator sport."--"Publishers Weekly""Young readers will be delighted to meet this fearsome foursome."--"Kirkus Reviews"show more
