Pigs by Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko (Annick Press, February 2014) is a hilarious look at an escaped pen of pigs. The pigs follow Megan to school, get her into trouble, and even drive the school bus home.
In the beginning, Megan’s father warns her not to open the pig pen. She, of course, dares to test the limits, even calling the pigs “dumb.” When the pigs do escape, she has a challenge to get them back in! In the end, she loves the pigs, and defends them against others who insult them by calling them “dumb.”
“They are smarter than you think!” she declares.
My six-year-old son loved this book! His loud laugh prompted us to read it over and over again.
