This is an extraordinary book!

It begins with three girls who have been voted the ugliest girls, pigs, in school by their classmates.

They are indignant and upset, but then determine not to accept such treatment.

They plan a roadtrip to Paris where they will cycle the distance and sell sausages along the way!

In the journey there are various adventures and mishaps, but also fame and friendship.

This book deserves to be taken slowly to avoid missing the puns and jokes. It's very funny, charming and quirky.
