First sentence: Portly Pig was feeling sad because he was so clean. He looked around and squealed aloud, "This grass is just too green." "I don't think I like it here. It's all so nice--it's yucky." So off he went along the path to look for somewhere mucky!
Premise/plot: This pig won't be satisfied until he's dirty!
My thoughts: Portly Pig is a rhyming board book to share with little ones. It is a sound book as well. Little ones can press the blue button to hear him oink and grunt. The pages are super-thick and sturdy. It does have a story, though a simple story to be sure. I enjoyed the illustrations by Axel Scheffler.
