Was Jimmie Piggy Bad? Or A Boy?

Jimmie Piggy

It was a sad little Pig that took his place on the stool in the corner of the school-room. And when his little sister Mary slipped into the room, and wrote upon the black-board behind him, “Jimmie is a bad boy,” he could hardly keep from crying.

Jimmie was not a bad Pig, and was not used to being punished. He did not like to be teased, either.

    1. Dear Sharon,

      Thanks. I just bought the Jimmie Piggie book, and I am mad crazy about him! You should definitely share your vintage book art – I will look forward to it.
      Best,
