Summary: Five Piggies are going to the market. Along the way, crazy events lead to baby piggy crying "wee, wee, wee" all the way home. This is a creative play on the infant/toddler game.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 8
Interest Level: 1 to 6
Age of Child: Read with 3-year-old boy.
Young Reader Reaction: Our son thought it was silly when the baby piggy flew through the air in the grocery store. He liked picking out and identifying items on the grocery store shelves, but it wasn't a book he jumped at reading again.
Adult Reader Reaction: The story was awkward, and the illustrations were strange. The holes in each pig's snout seemed over-sized.
Pros: This is a creative adaptation of the "Toes" rhyme. It is an action-packed story that young boys will like.
Cons: The adatpation of the "piggies/toes" rhyme took me (an adult) several readings to "get." My son didn't make the connection. The illustrations are slightly disturbing.
