This Little Piggy Went To Prada

My co-worker Stephanie brought this amazing book into work to show everyone and we all absolutely fell in love with it. Titled This Little Piggy Went To Prada, it’s a collection of nursery rhymes by Amy Allen tweaked for the Blahnik-wearing mommy set. Illustrated with stunning watercolor by Eun-kyung Kang and hardcover bound in hot pink linen, the book is totally adorable and fun to read. Definitely buying a copy on Amazon. (Bonus: portion of the proceeds of copies bought in the UK go to Save The Children and portion of the proceeds of copies in Singapore go to Action for AIDS Pregnant Mothers’ Fund.)

Hey diddle diddle,
The skirt fits my middle,
Mummy is over the moon.
Giorgio laughed,
"To see her size halved...
She'll be back in Armani soon!"

    I recently perused this book while wating in line at Papyrus, on LaSalle in Chicago… incredibly adorable and WELL DONE! I can’t wait for one of my fashionista friends to require a gift such as this!

    Love your site. You have excellent taste. But this book… actually makes me angry. It may sound extreme, but I think it’s just one more thing that promotes unconscious, hyper-consumption to kids, however young they may be.

    Hi Bianca. I understand where you are coming from. As cutesy as this book is, I sincerely believe it is meant for mommies, not children. (There’s a few rhymes in here that children wouldn’t understand at all.) Just wanted to clarify. :)
