This delightful picture book, first published in 1930, was written for children as a beautiful evocation of an era of awakening American interest in Mexican art and culture but it will appeal to adults as well. The author first went to Mexico in 1927, when her husband, Dwight Morrow, was appointed American ambassador. The story is about a remarkable painted pig with a savings bank manner and a very stylish rosebud tail. The pig belongs to Pita, and is coveted by her younger brother, Pedro. Pancho, 'The Toymaker' in the market, promises to make another one, but between the promise and the delivery is a wonderful story-telling journey. The story was inspired by the extraordinary collection of Mexican toys created by the author's friend Rene d'Harnoncourt, who illustrated the book. This facsimile of the first edition includes an introduction by a folklorist who knew Mrs Morrow when he was a boy and an afterword by two of her granddaughters.
