"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2–While the piggies in the original nursery rhyme number only five, this tale does not end with the unfortunate one who went wee, wee, wee/all the way home. Instead, the imaginative Harris duo envision a new, fun-filled scene and delight readers with the news that Fifth little piggy went,/'We, we, we…/We STILL aren't done!' The premise of this rhyming counting book is that 20 pigs have been invited to a picnic. Using all modes of transportation, the porcine guests arrive bearing treats, talents, and paraphernalia. What they don't notice is the infamous wolf straight out of The Three Little Pigs. True to form, he craves pork chops and seems destined to have his meal-until he stops to count only 19 porkers. Greed makes him the victim of a stampede when the 20th one, who has been napping, rings the dinner bell. Hilarious color cartoon illustrations show pigs with plenty of personality, each prominently displaying a number while that same number is hidden somewhere on the spread, along with the sneaky wolf. In the spirit of Margie Palatini's Piggie Pie! (Clarion, 1995), this funny story is perfect for one-on-one and group sharing.–Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT

20 hungry piggies is a great counting book that any child can follow along to. The illustrator did an excellent job with the illustrations and making each piggy unique and entertaining. It was a book everyone can relate to because everyone know 'that' family reunion with all your crazy relatives that do things that are sometimes embarrassing. It was a great take on a book that could be an expansion to the three little pigs being chased by the big bad wolf.
