#blogbookaday: Pig the Pug

11 Mar

22735715.jpgSummary:  “Pig is the greediest Pug in the world. He is ill-tempered, rude and unreasonable. When Pig the Pug is asked to share his toys, something unexpected happens. Hopefully Pig has learned a lesson!” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: In this brief picture book you’ll meet Pig the Pug and Trevor the wiener dog. Pig is not interested in sharing in the least – everything he has he wants to hoard, not share with Trevor. Pig builds a mountain of all his things and when he climbs to the very top, he has an accident. Trevor shares Pig’s toys while Pig recovers and hopefully learns his lesson in the process.

Personal Reaction: The illustrations in this story absolutely make the story – they are so funny – with an overweight Pug with crazy eyes and a little winer dog who just wants to have fun together! The illustrations are sure to make your kids chuckle out loud and maybe learn why sharing can be more fun than having toys, but not enjoying them! This is also the first in the series, so make sure you check out some of the other titles as well!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
