Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2?In Night Out, Miss Piggy is her usual vain self, trying to attract the attention of the rich and famous while she pays little attention to Kermit, her long-time friend. Faithful Kermit invites her to a fancy restaurant where all the stars eat, and makes her feel better after an embarrassing encounter with a director. Readers will find the story predictable but humorous. Leigh's colorful illustrations add to the lighthearted tone and provide some helpful details. Muntean's title is less predictable. Robin wants Uncle Kermit to read him his favorite bedtime story again; Kermit suggests that they write one instead. This story-within-a-story will definitely be a challenge for some beginning readers; however, the familiar characters and illustrations will help them meet it.?Mary Ann Bursk, Bucks County Free Library, Levittown, PA

By The Invisible Pam TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 26, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Ms. Piggy is convinced she is star material, so it only seems right that she and Kermit dine at Cloud Nine, the restaurant where all the other stars and biggies go to eat and be seen. Expecting to be 'discovered' Miss Piggy is dressed to the nines, however things don't quite work out the way she expects. Her problem? She a... um... makes a pig of herself with a large hot chocolate and ends up with a huge glob of whipped cream on her nose. Chaos ensues and our poor porcine heroine ends up horribly embarrassed. But not to worry --**WARNING Spoiler** -- Kermit does just the right things and the book ends happily.

As a story, "Miss Piggy's Night Out" is a bit lame, but the warmth of the friendship between frog and pig, and the gentle humor draws children into the tale. My children didn't even give me a chance to close the book before they asked for it to be read again.

As a practice-reader I think it would be fine, but not for the age range that the publisher lists. Their Level 2 is described as being appropriate for Beginners in the 5 - 8 age range. To which I can only say that they must have a very broad definition of 'beginner' in mind. In my experience with my own two children [boy and girl; 5 and 7], and with children at their school, this book is much too hard for most first graders. There is a great deal of dialog, for one thing; and plenty of non-beginner words such as: answer, chocolate, another, shouted, movies, around, whipped, waiter, problem, pointing, everyone, and napkin.

And indeed the official AR (Accelerated Reading) designation is 2.0, which means that this book is generally suitable for entering second graders. [The AR designation is a general "guide" that rates books on a relative scale of difficulty.
