This review is from: The Old Man and His Door (Paperback)
This book is apparently based on a Spanish song about how "el puerco" (the pig) and "la puerta" (the door) sound alike when you're old and deaf.
In the way of fool stories, the old man's silly mistake (bringing a door to a party when a little thought would've told him that's absurd and he should bring a pig!) turns out to everybody's benefit as he repeatedly stops to use his door to help people. It's astonishing how useful a door can be!
And so when he shows up late, without the pig but WITH the door and several useful things balanced nicely on it, his wife has no choice but to forgive him.
This is a good, funny story for kidlets.
