Hobart yearns to become a world famous tap dancer. Of course, this isnt easy when you are born a pig. But Hobart is one of the worlds great optimists, and he is convinced that if he can just keep himself and his siblings Violet (an acrobat), Byron (a poet), and Wilfred (a singer) from being turned into pork chops that they can make their dreams come true. Anita Briggs herself narrates, and the high-spirited musical finale will delight listeners of all ages.
