"Goin' to town,
gonna buy a little pig.
Jig jog jig jog

But when the old woman tries to take that little pig home to her little boy, the pig won't cross the bridge—this little piggy is afraid of the water! The old woman pushes and pulls, cries and cajoles, with no luck. Until she sees a dog, a rat, and a cat—can the old woman convince them to help her get the piggy back home?

Acclaimed storyteller Margaret Read MacDonald and illustrator John Kanzler bring new life to this classic tale.
