Can anyone recall a LGB - I think it was called George the Pig. It was about a pig that ate too many doughnuts, blew up like a balloon and then rained doughnuts on the village below...? Could be 30 years old.

I can't remember what happened to George... perhaps he was sacrificed to feed the village... I've just had my first baby and am trying to get all my faves from when I was a kid and George is one of them. Please, someone... FIND GEORGE!!!!!

Laughing Out Loud I googled goldenbooks, doughnuts, pig and I got this website. Thanks alot! I'm still searching. I'm glad I'm not the only one. When I tell the story, no one knows what I'm talking about either. We're in good company. (smile) It left a big impression on me. I'm 51 and would love to see it again!

I'm looking for George the Pig too; as I recall it was sort of sweetly gruesome in that George literally exploded after eating all the dough nuts that his mother made for a church bazaar. I have an image of an illustration (the last one in the book) of George wearing wings and a halo and (presumably) floating up to heaven. Even as a very young child (I'm now 54), I recognized the dark humor in the book, and the adults in my life found it hilarious. I've told my husband about it and we've decided to see if we can find a copy. So far we've been unsuccessful. I stumbled across this forum while searching for it. Big Grin
