Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who is Piggy Pie Po? Just the smartest (maybe), messiest (probably), silliest (definitely) piggy you'll ever meet. In these three small and playful stories, he's sure to become every child's most unforgettable new friend.
 
Award-winning team Audrey and Don Wood's picture books have been loved by children and parents for more than twenty-five years. With perfect pacing and exuberant illustrations, Piggy Pie Po introduces a new character that will be embraced by the next generation of little ones.

Review:

"While the three stories in this picture book are short on plot, they are filled with high-spirited acrylic paintings and rhymes that focus on a single character. The first story features Piggy Pie Po wearing different costumes as he engages in various activities ('If he wears his rubber fins,/ Piggy Pie Po swims and swims'), while the second tale offers demonstrations of the pig's many artistic and academic talents ('For a penny he will spell/ pistachio and pimpernel'). In the last story, Piggy Pie Po goes on an eating binge, which ends badly when he eats a chili pepper: 'So hot! So red!/ He ran straight home... and went to bed.' Like calendar photos of a potbellied porker, the illustrations (drawn by Audrey Wood and painted by Don) flip by accompanied by rhymes that are akin to (and will be as easily memorizable as) a rollicking nursery rhyme. As exuberant as the pigs in the Woods' Piggies, this solo star will likewise appeal to toddlers, whether he's dancing in his 'party pants' or playing a bongo drum in a hula skirt. Ages 3 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
