Meet Ogden Oink, a fun-loving, adventurous, likeable piglet. He dresses and speaks as humans do, gets into more than his fair share of difficulties because he interprets figurative expressions literally, and he does not understand various meanings of polysemous (i.e., multiple-meaning) words.

A studious-looking, somewhat didactic bird appears throughout near the edges of the pages to add even more figurative language to the story. The "language confusion" humor will get young readers thinking about language-and laughing, too.
