Rated 5 out of 5 by from funny, irreverent story Yes, everyone does dumb things. It seems that underestimating pigs is a dumb thing to do. Megan, unfortunately, has to learn the hard way. As someone who did work with pigs as a kid, when I read this I thought it was great. It's not terribly educational, or inspiring, or anything like that. But gosh, it's entertaining. The pictures of the pigs are really funny, of course. I recommend _Pigs_ for the same kids who liked Eloise

From Our Editors

Megan is told to feed the pigs, but not to open the gate. She does of course, and the results are hilarious as the pigs help themselves to coffee and the newspaper at the breakfast table, follow Megan to school, and ride home by way of the school bus. Full-color illustrations

Editorial Reviews

“Munsch’s story combined with the zany illustrations of Martchenko allow children to indulge in the absurd.”—Resource Links, 06/14
