About Book

Sassy Pants is a about choices and consequences.

It is a story of a cute little pig with a big attitude. Sassy Pants insisted upon her own way without regard for other's feelings. "She did not notice, nor did she care!"

She ignored feelings, fences, boundaries and authority! She didn't even listen to the Boss Hog! She gave the farmer's wife a tizzy, ruffled feathers and tied fur in knots both in the barnyard and out of it! Finally the barnyard friends turned to Farmer White for help to stop Sassy Pants' rampage.

Some learn the easy way and some learn the hard way. Find out how Sassy Pants learned!

Sassy Pants and Company is a blog just for the Sassy Pants Series. It is designed to be a fun, safe, place for children. You can find character interviews, parent/teacher resources and an activity page with pages of worksheets designed around the stories. Eventually I hope to have games as well.

You can download discussion helps from the "downloadables" page!

This is the first in a series of four Sassy Pants stories.  Published by Tate Publishing.

My Thoughts

On Farmer White's farm Sassy Pants was born the runt of the litter out of 18 piglets.  There was no room for her and she was too small to fight her way to get her food.  So Farmer White took her from the pig pen and took her into the house for Mrs. White to care for her.

Sassy became so spoiled she ate table scraps or anything Mrs. White young son's would feed her.  They played with her and she had become a part of the family.  As she grew she became very mischievous so she was returned to the pig pen with her mother and her siblings.  She was not happy with this and refused to adjust to life in a pigs pen and kept digging out.   She became a trouble maker and a bully making Mrs. White and the other farm animals very unhappy with her.

Well Farmer White and his wife were not going to put up with Sassy Pants being so destructive and besides being in a pen was for her own protection.  Sassy was fixing to get the shock of her life if she did not follow the rules.

Do you think acting like a bully and a troublemaker will get you whatever you want?  Does it make you feel special or better than everyone else?  Well read this story and find out how Sassy learned the hard way.

The author and Miss Molly tell a good tale about following rules. Being a bully is no way to treat other.
It is a tale of selfishness, bullying,  lack of respect for others and their property.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.

I received a copy of this book from the author for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion.
