Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hilarious trickster tale companion to the story time hit My Lucky Day.

Just as Alligator Al is planning the perfect birthday dinner for himself, there is a knock on his door. It's a delicious-looking piglet—how lucky!

But as Al prepares his feast, the piglet makes some suggestions. Shouldnt Al have a big birthday cake? Piglet can tell him how to make one. And wouldnt the celebration be more fun with fancy decorations and party guests? Piglet would be happy to ask some friends to come over.
Al is so lucky that Piglet is there to help...or is he? Could Piglet have a clever party trick up his sleeve?
Fans of trickster tales, rooting for the underdog, and the proven crowd favorite My Lucky Day will be thrilled to see who turns out to have the luckiest birthday of all.

Synopsis:

Gritch the witch flies to Old MacDonald's farm for some pigs to make piggie pie.

Synopsis:

Cleverly disguised pigs impersonate ducks, chickens, a cow, and Old MacDonald himself, as this uproarious, quick-paced story builds to an ironically surprising conclusion. Wacky, hip, and illustrated with bold, bright paintings, "Piggie Pie!" adds a new twist to an old fairy-tale scene.
