Book Description

Megan is told to feed the pigs, but not to open the gate. She does of course, and the results are hilarious as the pigs help themselves to coffee and the newspaper at the breakfast table, follow Megan to school, and ride home by way of the school bus.

This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.

I read this book yesterday to my 3-year-old pre-k class today during our afternoon circle time. This story had their attention from beginning to end. I have to add Robert Munsch to our list of favorite authors. Pigs kept my class of 24, that is not a typo,twenty-four 3-year-olds entertained 2 times in a row! The want to hear it again tomorrow for our morning circle time.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny, irreverent story January 4, 2006
Format:Paperback
Yes, everyone does dumb things. It seems that underestimating pigs is a dumb thing to do. Megan, unfortunately, has to learn the hard way.
As someone who did work with pigs as a kid, when I read this I thought it was great. It's not terribly educational, or inspiring, or anything like that. But gosh, it's entertaining. The pictures of the pigs are really funny, of course. I recommend _Pigs_ for the same kids who liked _Eloise_.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not his best July 7, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
My 3 1/2 year old daughter is a huge Munch fan and likes this one well enough, but it's my least favourite. She tends to memorize books and quote them constantly, and I'm not thrilled with the "hey, you dumb...." mantra. This is kind of minor, but how was it that the pigs showed up at school after Megan locked them back in at home? If you're wanting to add to your Munch collection, he's written better. Alligator Baby and Thomas's Snowsuit are fun without the insults and a little more logically consistent.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL read-aloud... April 16, 2002
Format:Paperback
Being a substitute teacher isn't always the easiest job and sometimes you have a lot of time to fill. I frequently used this book during those down times and it was ALWAYS a hit with the grade school set, they loved to make the pig sounds in the book. A MUST HAVE for any grade school teacher or a parent with grade school aged children!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pigs (Annikin) by Robert Munsch November 2, 2012
Format:Paperback
I've been reading Robert Munsch books for 20 years. I have read them to neices, nephews, kids I've mentored, neighbor kids, kids at church, airports, & doctors offices and any place you find a kid. Kids love them as they have a great story, good rhythm and they are funny. "Pigs" is about a young girl who needs to take care of the pigs for her father and then watches them get out of control." "Annikins" are approx 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" so they fit in a birthday card or in your purse. You can also buy the books in 8" x 8" glossey cardboard cover or in hardback. In my opinion, any Robert Munsch books are the best. He has around 30+ titles.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pigs, not so great
I do not think it is good to be calling animals dumb in a book aimed at very young children. I had to change the wording when I read to my grandchildren.
