Dear Reader:

Did you ever wonder what happened to The Three Little Pigs when they grew up?

Could it be that they became HOGG, HOGG, & HOG?

The story of HOGG, HOGG, & HOG is all about how three big pigs make it in the Big City as big, big, big business tycoons and media darlings. They've got everybody "oinking". But, of course, it's the thing to do, doncha know! "OINK! OINK! OINK-OINK OINK!"

But too soon, the day comes when people get tired of saying "oink", and these three pigs aren't so very big any more. What will they do? How can they get their "mojo" back?

First, they find out how fame, fortune and success can be very fragile things.

Then they discover that to be successful it takes lots of hard work, and doing the right things, like being honest, working together with others and sharing.

What did you want to be when you grow up? When I was a little girl I wanted to be an artist. And I'm so pleased to say that I had the opportunity to write HOGG, HOGG, & HOG, but illustrate this book, as well.

For a chance to win a signed copy of my book send an email to and say 'oink". One winner will be picked at random.

Your Friend,
Margie Palatini
