School Library Journal - 08/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1—Pig, everyone's favorite buggy-eyed pug, is back up to his old tricks. In the latest series addition, the greedy dog delights in destroying all sorts of objects around the house. His owners don't appreciate this though, so whenever he is about to get caught, he points a paw at Trevor. The poor wiener dog who gets punished in the other's place only wants to be friends. Pig pushes his luck too far though. When he tries to steal some treats, karma catches up to him. This leaves readers with a rather satisfying and hilarious lesson about lying. Blabey's snappy lines and exaggerated acrylic-based art fully support the method with which he conveys this message. He doesn't preach, he lets kids reach their own conclusion, and keeps their full attention through humor. The rhyme scheme is clever and measured, and the space and page turns always aid the comedic timing. VERDICT If you've bought Pig before, you'll want to add the account of his latest misdeeds to your collection. Caregivers and educators can easily use him as an example of why it's best to behave.—Rachel Forbes, Oakville Public Library, Ont. - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
