Description of this Book

Pig the Pug is causing havoc and hilarity as he travels around the world. Pig was a Pug and I'm sorry to say, when he went on vacation he'd cause great dismay. Everywhere he goes around the globe, Pig the Pug offends the locals and causes destruction and devastation. However, in the end, Pig's rudeness comes back to bite him... Rich with author-illustrator Aaron Blabey's signature rhyming text and unforgettable illustrations, Pig the Tourist is a laugh-out-loud story that follows the six previous books in the series (Pig the Pug, Pig the Winner, Pig the Elf, Pig the Star, Pig the Fibber, and Pig the Stinker).
