It's a pig's life being a princess. Young princess Isabella has it all - but has had enough of all of it. Isabella has had enough of being waited on hand and foot, of having to smile all the time, and of wearing beautiful dresses that she can't climb trees in. So when the king banishes her to the pigsty, his punishment backfires - Isabella's happier there than a pig in mud.
"The outraged king prescribes tours of duty in the kitchens and pigsty, but Isabella merely revels in the good, honest work and good, honest mess--until her father cajoles her from the pigsty with tender words of respect and love." -- Booklist
