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.

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.

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_.

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!

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.

The illustrations of the pigs taking over Megan's school sell the book, really.

I will note that if you're concerned about the use of the word "dumb" as an insult that you might want to read this book before you buy it. Honestly, though, as insulting the pigs is exactly what gets Megan into trouble, I think the lesson "choose your words carefully" speaks for itself.

Robert Munsch is an author I grew up with as a child. Now that my friends are starting to have babies, I'm starting to collect my favorite things while growing up. This book with many others he has written come to mind. That's why i love this book and would recommend these well played witty books! Hope you all give him a try and enjoy!

This hilarious book will have your kids rolling on the floor with laughter. It is now being released in board book form so little hands can experience the happiness of handling and cuddling their own-sized book. The text and illustrations are modified from the original but will not be missed by a brand new gang of potential Munsch lovers.

Megan's dad asks her to feed the pigs but to be careful not to open the gate because pigs are smarter than you think. Megan promises she will not allow that to happen and heads off outside to the pigpen. Her observation after leaning over the gate and giving the piggies a going over with her eyeballs concludes that pigs are the dumbed looking animals that she has ever seen. Little by little her nose gets closer to the specimens and the gate creeps open a little more each time she leans in. The pigs watch her, wait patiently and at the precise perfect time they all stampede out of the gate. Oh oh!

They make a beeline or should I say piggyline to the house and cause havoc and chaos inside. "Get these pigs out of here! yelled her father. Megan yelled, "HEY YOU DUMB PIGS!" The pigs jumped up-wap, wap, wap! - and ran out the door." Then they zoom off to Megan's school to cause mayhem and disturbances there. When it's time to head for home and the bus pulls up for pick up, guess whose driving the bus? You guessed it...all aboard the piggy bus....and the pigs squeal and chew (the bus seats) and party ..... all the way home. Could Megan restrain herself from ever repeating that faux pas again? You will laugh at loud at the last page where that question just may be answered for you. Oh oh!
The illustrations are magnificent! Spot on! Amazing! Colourful, full of expression and emotion, action-packed and cartoonish.
