Read-aloud opera based on the book by Yvonne Jagtenberg (2+)
Herman the pot-bellied pig doesn’t like competitions. He thinks they’re a hassle. But the chickens cackle loudly every morning about who is the first, the best or the fastest. One day, Herman has had enough. Now he’ll show them who is the fastest. All the animals cheer him on. But does it really matter whether you win or lose?
