What is mud, anyway? Mud can be wet soil, but the best, squishiest, ozziest mud puddles are wet clay. Clay is made of minerals (rocks are made of minerals, too).
I love mud. It's a sunscreen so I don't burn my nose or tail. Mosquitoes can't bite me. But best of all, mud can be made into mud pies, mud cupcakes, and mud strudel. I can make mud paintings and mud sculptures. People make houses and buildings out of mud. Adobe bricks are made of sand, clay, sticks, and straw. The bricks dry and harden in the sun. In ancient times, large temples and even whole cities were made from mud bricks.
A whole town is too much for a pig--but I'd really like a mud igloo someday.
Yours with snorts,
It's time for bed, but bedtime at Cornelius's house is no ordinary event. Whether it's stuffing toys in the fridge or playing rodeo in the bathroom, this plucky piggy has his own ideas.
