Pigs are funny animals and kids love them. Unlike foxes that are sly and owls that are wise, pigs are most often silly, which makes them wonderful characters for children's books. The pigs in these stories are silly, but also occasionally clever. You can't judge a pig by his sterotype! Here are five wonderfully silly and fantastical tales about pigs.
Pigsty by Mark Teague -- A young boy with a very messy room welcomes his first few pig visitors, but soon he realizes pigs in his room are not all fun and games.
Piggies by Audrey and Don Wood -- A wonderful creative twist on "This Little Piggie." With detailed and vibrant illustrations by Don Wood the classic fingerplay takes on a whole new life. Each finger is given its own personality and as the setting changes on each page these personalities come alive. Audrey and Don Wood have collaborated on several other wonderful books including The Napping House and Hackedy Peg.
