There is so much to like about this spudtacular little gem. Mostly I like that the authors stay within certain boundaries, limiting the complexity of the plot, limiting the ambitiousness of word choices, and even limiting the number count to TEN. What they've created is a book with a great story, intrinsic didactic value, and elements that demand repetitive readings. It's one of those special, children's books worth purchasing, and a quality addition to the family library.
Christopher Denise's illustrations are outstanding, warranting long looks and repeat visits. That his art was created with acrylic and charcoal on board means little to me, but the fabulous detail one these pages and the artist's obvious talents do impress. His personification of the pigs is credible and effective with their humanlike gestures and emotive facial expressions. Even someone like myself who can barely draw a stick figure can appreciate, the dominant pastels and occasional contrasting bright colors. Texture, shadow, and minute detail work so well on conscious and unconscious levels.Read more ›
What's their last job? Kiss mama's cheek and remove their plates from the table.
I just LOVE the messages in this book. First all the pigs help prepare the meal and then they sit down together to eat. This is the way it should be. Simply written in that there are not that many words on each page but absolutely well worth reading and the illustrations help tell the story.
(Although I received a free copy of this book from the author, the opinions in this review are true and are my own.)
