From the Publisher
"Jarvis (Lazy Dave) strikes a brisk, matter-of-fact tone that’s spot-on for his overconfident, inconsiderate hero, and he ties up the loose ends of the story with a clever best-of-both-worlds twist." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This strong debut picture book will leave young listeners and librarians alike hungry for the author’s next offering. A perfect choice for storytime." —School Library Journal
Mary’s woolly friend is joined by a colorful (and noisy) entourage in a funny first concept board book by the inimitable Jarvis.
Everyone knows that Mary had a little companion, with fleece as white as snow. Baaa! But did you know that an orange tiger trailed them? Raar! And a pink dancing hippo, too? Fa-la-la-la-la! And who is that red fellow swinging on a vine, or those blue bears blowing on horns? With a bright array of colors and a cacophony of sound words, this cumulative twist on a classic rhyme will have children clamoring to follow along.
These little piggies lead a series of silly counting opportunities from one to ten as Jarvis puts his spin on a popular nursery rhyme.
One little piggy went to market. Two little piggies had a car but couldn’t park it.
When one little piggy sets out for the market, more and more piggies join in, dancing for hours, flying with superpowers, playing bongos on top of an elephant — and counting to ten all the while. Leading young ones easily from toe games to numbers, this little book will have them squealing with fun.
And don't miss
—The New York Times Book Review
Jarvis (Lazy Dave) strikes a brisk, matter-of-fact tone that’s spot-on for his overconfident, inconsiderate hero, and he ties up the loose ends of the story with a clever best-of-both-worlds twist. His pictures are even better...They’re gorgeous—and thanks to his accomplished cartooning, they’re funny, too.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
A strength of the illustrations lies in the ability to convey emotion...
This strong debut picture book will leave young listeners and librarians alike hungry for the author’s next offering. A perfect choice for storytime.
—School Library Journal
This book invites interaction with the story and plenty of action and noise as Alan makes his way through the jungle and on to a new identity. There is a nice message about being a friend as the story draws to a close. This is a good title for primary collections and collections that need strong, artistic storytelling on their shelves.
—School Library Connection
Digitally colored illustrations in pencil, chalk, and paint portray Alan as more of a goofball than a menace, while the jungle animals blend into the background—a good precaution with an alligator neighbor. The reformation of a bully is a familiar story, but Alan’s version is nicely told, and the eventual outcome is especially enjoyable.
A hilarious, cautionary tale with a wonderful conclusion on kindness, this imaginative story will have kids in stitches.

The two year old demands I read this book EVERY NIGHT....and if she catches me slacking during the day!
I gotta say it's a pretty beautiful and charming story.
Fully Recommend and I wish the author made more like it.
