Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-This lightweight offering depicts the odyssey of a band of urbane pigs playing gigs. These groovy porkers who dabble in a variety of musical styles are shown living the life of modern-day troubadours. They perform into the wee hours and sleep late. They're swarmed by fans and sign autographs. They even have to hassle with life on the road, mechanical difficulties, and the pressure of getting to their next appearance. Simple rhymed verse conveys the tale in a breezy manner. Bold geometric shapes form the characters, and the colored backdrops against which they appear complement the jaunty musical feel of the text. An additional purchase.

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. Pigs rock? Do they ever, in this high-style picture book that uses geometric shapes and edgy graphic illustrations to tell the story of piggies in a rock band. "Pigs rock. Pigs roll. Pigs sing with heart and soul." That swinging introduction leads into the story of four pigs who play not only rock but also country and jazz. The rhyme is bouncy as it takes the pigs through their day, sleeping when the sun's out to get ready for their concerts at night: "Fans clap / Fan cheer. / It's the pig rock band they love to hear." There's even a bit of a story line tucked in the text as the band has an accident on the road that means that they may not make their date. The art, reminiscent of Lane Smith's work in Pinocchio (2002), has a joie de vivre that permeates every page. The various graphic elements can be as simple as the pigs in "funky suits" set against an expanse of white, standing on a block of red, or as intricate as the contrast of a circular band shell set against a city skyline, all vertical shapes, each building accommodating rows of rectangular windows. Sharp! Ilene Cooper

This is a great book that teaches the youngest kids about music and rhyme. It's an easy read for 2-4 age group. Daughter and I love the funny illustrations of those rockin pigs! Its a great addition.

I checked this book out at the library for my two year old daughter. After renewing it a few times because she loved it so much. I decided to order it and I'm glad i did. We read this story at least once a day and i think that it is a book that will grow with her.

I'm a huge fan of Bob Staake's illustrations, so I was excited to check out this new picture book. AMAZING artwork here -- lush, vibrant, eye-popping and hip as ever! Nice to see his art being displayed so HUGE here!
Great book!

By Susan SJSU on November 6, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Here, we follow this famous band on their tour. They play country, they play rock and roll, they play blues, and everything they play, they play it with their heart and soul. And their loyal fans love them.

Using simple, energetic rhyme, the author brings us into the world of this band, Illustrations are colorful, a combination of art deco style with 1950s space age modern. Plenty of use of geometric forms come into play and color enhances the mood.

Pigs Rock! is a fun, rhyming read, especially for little ones with older siblings who already have favorite bands. Can we next expect a dvd of the Pigs of their performance on tour?
