Piggy Pie Po

Piggy Pie Po. Audrey & Don Wood. 2010. September 2010. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 32 pages.
Piggy Pie Po likes to dance
when he wears his party pants.
If he wears his rubber fins,
Piggy Pie Po swims and swims.
When he wears his yellow coat...
Piggy Pie Po is a picture book containing three stories starring Piggy Pie Po. In the first story, readers learn about some of the things Piggy Pie Po does. (Or more accurately, what clothes he wears when doing certain things...) In the second story, we learn how smart and clever Piggy Pie Po is. But even though he can count backwards ten to one and read every book upon his shelf...Piggy Pie Po can't do everything. In the third story, Piggy Pie Po goes to a friend's house for dinner--finding the friend absent--Piggy Pie Po eats the magnificent feast himself. With some predictable results!

I enjoyed the second and third stories best. While Piggy Pie Po isn't as memorable as some of the Woods' previous books, I still enjoyed it quite a bit.
