But the gadgets cause a lot of trouble. The car breaks down; the washer overflows; the TV goes on the blink. Bertha and Briggs are working so hard, they have no time to play! Soon their new clothes are thrown to the wind, and two happy pigs head back to the country for a carefree roll in the mud.
Helen Oxenbury gleefully illustrates Bertha and Briggs bumbling their way through a life of luxury. And kids will agree that romping and playing beat mowing the lawn any day!
