Mrs Tati wants a baby and when no baby appears, Mr Tati comes up with a jaunty solution! He brings his wife a sweet little piglet with a rosy face and curly tail. How Mr and Mrs Tati love their piggy baby, but should he be brought up as a boy or a pig, and what will happen if he goes to school? And could this tale have one more twist at the end of it...'

Came home to some cards and a surprise book from Chapters! 🥰 There was no note with the book but I‘m assuming it‘s also from #PoutinePenPals?

EDIT: Found a note tucked in the center of book! Thank you @mcctrish ! This one has been on my TBR for quite some time, now I can finally read it! 💚

mcctrish Oh I‘m happy it arrived! I love this book, it‘s way up there on all time favourites 4d
Pricel101 Yay! 😚 Wishing you a happy summer of reading! Heather O‘Neill is a great writer:) 3d

My #summersantagoespostal package is headed south to @Soubhiville - est. arrival is Thursday, May 30th...which is the same day I head east for #BookCon! I hope everything makes it there safely! 👋🏼☀️❤️📚 Also, like a doofus...I forgot to put the card in the box, so it‘s coming separately. Just open it after the things in the box! 😉 Enjoy!!

@BookishMarginalia

Soubhiville Oh how exciting! Thank you! I‘ll be on the lookout. 💕 2mo

A really nice surprise was in my mailbox today. Thank you again @RamsFan1963 for your #10k1stanniversary giveaway. Even without this, I‘ve won by having you in my Litsy family.

Y‘all, @Mitch sent me a cat trap! Yep, the shiny red cat trap showed up in my mailbox and promptly caught the rare and elusive Ozzie when I brought it into the house. Seriously Mitch, thank you so much for the surprise. Even if it didn‘t say on it to wait to open it, I don‘t think I could open it now that the great and terrible Oz has claimed it (at least until he gets the zoomies again). 😂
