This Little Piggy went to Prada

This Little Piggy went to Prada: These twenty-one revamped, tongue-in-cheek, name-dropping nursery rhymes, all wrapped up in a luxurious, linen-bound cover. With its super-chic look and beautiful illustrations, This Little Piggy went to Prada is the must-have gift for new mums. It’s politically incorrect, utterly frivolous and lots of fun. If the Sex and the City girls or Desperate Housewives had a baby shower, it would be top of the gift list.

Glamorous businesswoman, successful entrepreneur and first-time author (and mother), Amy Allen has made poetry out of her inability to relate to pease pudding and attempts at talking fashion with a gurgling newborn. Amy has followed the flow of the original rhymes and invented the words, but This Little Piggy went to Prada also contains the delightful, traditional versions too. Filled with sumptuous full color illustrations by Eun-Kyung Kung, this book presents classic nursery rhymes with a thoroughly modern and charmingly ironic spin that will make the most sleepless fashionista mom smile.

The irreverent and effervescent Amy Poon (formerly Allen) was educated at Wycombe Abbey and in various restaurants around the world.

This Little Piggy went to Prada is the ultimate literary purchase for lovers of Bill Amberg baby slings, baby Dior booties and Porsche toy cars. Nursery rhymes have never been so fashionable…Can any stylish mother resist its name-dropping charms?
