PiggyWiggy never minds taking a bath. He likes to sail his toy boat and think of all the things he could do in the water, from being a deep-sea diver to surfing the biggest waves to water-skiing off tall jumps. PiggyWiggy as a submarine captain ventures into a sea cave and finds a giant sea monster (a red squid) lurking within.
Just as our porcine hero extends his imagination to its farthest reaches, the pages of Bathtime PiggyWiggy stretch out and up and all around when young readers pull on them. This continuation of the pleasing PiggyWiggy series (Fire Fighter PiggyWiggy, etc.) by husband-wife team, Christyan and Diane Fox, will charm young readers, especially reluctant bathers. What joy to turn the brightly colored pages, only to discover there's more there than meets the eye! A light tug on each page allows the story to unfold--literally--for an interactive experience that will stretch toddlers' imagination. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
From School Library Journal
reS-K-A little pig imagines himself as a deep-sea diver, a long-distance swimmer, a submarine captain, and more until bathtime is over and he asks, "I wonder who I'll be tomorrow?" Brightly illustrated, entertaining foldout pages in various configurations reveal the types of adventures he might have in each situation. The foldouts are multilayered and large, making them difficult to manage and susceptible to being torn. This appealing book will not last long in the hands of a toddler, or on library shelves. However, in the more careful hands of a librarian or teacher, it will delight groups.
