This Little Piggy: An Owner's Manual
First sentence: Have you always wanted a pet with all your heart?
Premise/plot. This Little Piggy: An Owner's Manual stars two kids--a brother and a sister--desperate to convince their Mom they need a pet. The pet they decide upon--after some scheming on the sister's part--is A PIG. The book is a step-by-step manual on how to convince your mom to let you have a pet pig. The text is both in prose and speech bubbles. This chapter book features a lot of illustrations.
My thoughts: I liked it. It had its cute moments. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to kids, the actual target audience. It just wasn't a thrilling read for me--as an adult! I would imagine that it's a stand-alone book and not part of a larger ongoing series.
