Amazon.com Review

PiggyWiggy, hero of his own dreams in Goodnight PiggyWiggy, is now ready to narrow down his career options as he imagines being a fearless fire fighter. "I would wear a big yellow hat and slide down a shiny pole on my way to an emergency." He goes on to picture himself riding around in the fire engine, rescuing his faithful companion Teddy from places high and low, putting out blazing fires, and even cooling everyone down on hot summer days. But, as PiggyWiggy himself says, "It's always good to know that in a real emergency... I can call a real life fearless fire fighter who will come racing to the rescue" The real emergency in this case is a broken hose spigot and dry toddler pool that needs filling!

Although the punch line of this story might be a good place for a "kids, don't try this at home" caveat (an empty rubber pool is not actually an emergency!), future fire fighters will surely love this joyful book. Bright, Boyntonesque colors, big, bold, bumpy lettering, and a blissfully imaginative pig protagonist add up to one swell picture book. Parents and teachers can use it as a starting point for an emergency preparation lesson. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

After considering several possible vocations in Goodnight PiggyWiggy, the porcine hero thoroughly imagines one career in Fire Fighter PiggyWiggy by Christyan and Diane Fox, including rescuing his teddy bear from the top of the leaning tower of Pisa and "cool[ing] everyone down on a hot sunny day" (the accompanying illustration shows the hero dousing his stuffed animals with a hose).

We bought this book for our almost 4 yr old son to introduce him to imaginary play. We were looking for books that showed him what different occupations do, so that we could pretend to be them together. He loved Piggy Wiggy from the first read-through! I am ordering the other titles in the series, and look forward to more!

My five week old son already enjoys the pictures-the book is large enough and the illustrations are brightly colored and full of contrast for him, not to mention adorable! I know we'll be reading and re-reading this one for years to come.

This is my 3 1/2 yr olds new favorite book. We read it EVERY night. It's an easy read, not too long & the pictures allow you to make up a little bit more to the story than what's actually written. This is a must for little boys!
