Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey is so simple, but so funny. The kids have read it a million times but they still laugh every single time. Pig is a selfish, obnoxious little pug who doesn’t like to share. Trevor the sausage dog wants to play with Pig’s toys, but the latter refuses and piles all his toys up and plonks himself on top of this little mountain of toys with drastic consequences.
The lines are short and snappy, but witty. The common saying ‘when pigs fly’ is given hilarious new meaning in this book. The expressive illustrations add to the humour of the book and the kids are always tickled by the image of pathetic Pig all mummified in bandages on the last page of the book.
Pig the Pug teaches kids about sharing, friendship, and kindness in a very funny way without being preachy. You can watch the author Aaron Blabey read a portion of the book here. Pig the Pug is available from Book Depository for S$11.64.
