Hello, everyone! Today’s book is the unbelievably darling Pug Meets Pig by Sue Lowell Gallion and Joyce Wan, an adorable take on a classic story about friendship.
Pug is rather pleased with his life. He has his house, his bowl, his yard and his doghouse, and everything is just the way he likes it. That is, until the day a new pet arrives: a pig! Pig hogs all of Pug’s favorite things, and poor Pug is positively irked. Can these two get past their problems to become pals?
This book is so CUTE. As stories go, it’s pretty familiar (but still timeless): conflicting personalities who learn how to sympathize and become friends. What sets this book apart, however, is the delightful text that is expressive, well-paced, and a joy to read aloud, and the heart-burstingly cute kawaii-style illustrations. Bright colors and bold lines make for a lot of visual interest for baby bookworms, and the length is great. To be honest, we’re stoked we get to keep this one because JJ loved it so much, as did I, and your little reader will too. Baby Bookworm approved!
