Virginia Vincent Folsum better known as Ginger is a very elegant lady An accomplished pianist socially active and what style You are what you wear is her motto But Ginger's greates An amusing story about Ginger an eccentric fashionable and warm hearted musical artist and her pampered pig Petunia When Ginger is called away urgently to London for a performance she coordinates with an agency to take care of Petunia and her other affairs while she is away But the agency cancels after Ginger has already left Instead of wallowing in her own misery Petunia decides to take charge After all Ginger always said You are what you wear Maybe if Petunia wears Ginger s fabulous clothes she will be like GingerThis is a fun and fanciful story though I feel a bit curmudgeony saying that I m not sure what was exactly the point about it It s still well written and an enjoyable read though compared to other Polacco books it fell short for me Still she has written so many remarkable books about some very heavy subjects perhaps she just wanted to write a silly one for a change and I can t say as I blame her And the illustrations in this one are especially humorous and winsome
