Summary

When a cruel and selfish king learns that his step-daughter’s beauty could be the end to his tyrannical reign, he places a spell on her – cursing her with the face of a pig! Now, Princess Pigface of Hillshire must cross many hills and swim many streams, seeking out acceptance and true love's first kiss. Along the way, she meets a dashingly handsome woodsman who prefers picking flowers to hunting, and comes to learn that true beauty is found within. Told with tongue firmly in cheek, this is a magical, musical fairy tale that both kids and adults should enjoy!
