Synopses & Reviews
In the spirit of the bestselling classics DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS! and THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS BOOK comes a riotously funny, interactive picture book from a hot new team.
"Excuse me, but who do you think you are, opening this book when the cover clearly says, DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK? The reason you weren't supposed to open this book is because it is not yet written!...You think it's easy to put words together? Hah! Now go away--I need time to think."
So begins Pig's valiant attempt to pen his masterpiece. But he is constantly interrupted by the reader who is seduced at every turn into foiling his efforts ("please go away" "please do not turn the page")--until at last we reach the final page and discover that together, Pig and the reader have indeed created a book.
Pig is valiantly trying to write his masterpiece, but he needs quiet and begs readers not to turn the pages and disturb him. But who can resist? Outrageously funny text and pricelessly expressive pictures combine to create a clever picture book gem. Full color.
