Item description for Alice's Birthday Pig (Eerdmans Books For Young Readers) by Tim Kennemore & Mike Spoor...

Alice's brother teases her mercilessly because she cannot say the word "animal" correctly, but she gets her revenge on her eighth birthday.

Publishers Description
Alice fetched the three-legged pig and plopped it down in the middle of the food, where it snorted and grunted and gobbled, collapsed on its back and wiggled its legs at Alice as if it hadn't even noticed that she'd gi ven the food to the turkey first. Alice sighed. What a forgiving pig. A generous pig
'I wish I could take you home with me,' she said sadl y, and for a moment she could have sworn she saw the pig wink.

Alice's s older brother is good at everything, and he teases her mercilessly about her difficulty in pronouncing words. Her baby sister is a toddling tornado who gets into everything.

In-the-middle Alice wants to learn to speak properly so Oliver will stop teasing her. She also wishes for a real pig for her eighth birthday, something of her very own. When her birthday finally ar rives, Alice receives more than she could have wished for.

Reviews - What do customers think about Alice's Birthday Pig?

Upbeat, easy-to-read story.  May 8, 2008
Alice's Birthday Pig is a chapter book for young readers ages 7-10 about a girl who longs for a pet of her very own, and who gets frustrated over her inability to properly pronounce the world "animal". Her brother teases her by comparing the way she talks to that of their baby sister Rosie, which is completely unfair since Rosie is only three! Alice's dream of having a pet pig eventually comes to pass in a surprising way - when she becomes the proud owner and responsible caretaker of a guinea pig! A handful of charming black-and-white illustrations enhance this upbeat, easy-to-read story.
