Piggy Pie Poby Audrey Wood
Synopses & Reviews
Who is Piggy Pie Po? Just the smartest (maybe), messiest (probably), silliest (definitely) piggy you'll ever meet.and#160;In these three small andand#160;playful stories, he's sure to becomeand#160;every child's mostand#160;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.
"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)
