by Miss Piggy, as told to Henry Beard

While her credentials as a philosopher may not be truly kosher, Miss P is never at a loss for an opinion. In this book, with characteristic lack of false modesty, she undertakes to be a combination of Ann Landers, Sylvia Porter, Julia Child and Friedrich Nietzsche, offering advice on just about everything short of how to cook pork chops. On dieting: “Never eat anything at one sitting that you can’t lift.” On what a woman should do if a man stands her up: “He is obviously the kind of person who is not going to knock himself out for you, and you should do it for him.” While the Muppet Princess runs on a little (113 pages) and some of her punch lines thud, who’s better qualified to send up smug how-to-succeeders?
