Editorial Reviews


“Children will oink, growl, and bump along with this one.” -- Kirkus Reviews

From the Publisher

When Tim and his mother go to the playground, no one is there. Without anyone to play with, Tim wants to go home. “Wait,” says his mother, “I think I can see—what can it be, sitting on the swing?” Tim looks at the swings. What was there? Was it a pig? Yes, a pink pig! Sitting on a swing! Join Tim as he swings with pigs, seesaws with kangaroos, and more in this riotous cavalcade of animals. Jennie Nimmo won the prestigious Smarties Prize for her novel, The Snow Spider; her fantasy, Griffin’s Castle, was shortlisted for the both a Smarties Prize and a Carnegie Medal. Caroline Uff is the author and illustrator of the internationally successful Lulu books. Ages 2–4.

Format: Hardcover
Caroline Uff's engaging simple line drawings accent Pig On A Swing by Jenny Nimmo. This is the story of Tim and his mum, who enter an empty playground only to find a host of animals, from a pink pig to kangaroos, pop up to play with them. A gently engaging story of self-entertainment and imagination evolves.
