WHY did the first pig go to market? WHY did the second stay home? WHY did the third have roast beef? Cuz, ew, pigs eating cows... I can imagine why the fourth pig had none. But exactly WHY did the last little piggy go "wee, wee, wee, wee all the way home?"

All the answers to the questions you never thought you had are found in this book!
My favorite kids' books have great, colorful images, simple text, and some humor. This book fits the bill! While I'm usually not a fan of bathroom humor, this book passed with flying colors. I get a giggle out of it every time! All my kids -- 5, 9 and 12 -- crack up when I read it.

We enjoyed this book. It was a nice, fast paced book, and the piggies were adorable. My son was especially impressed at the end. :)

Readers of David Martin's books won't be surprised when they meet the author and find that he is just as entertaining as his books - he sings, plays the guitar or the kazoo, or even juggles during his school visits. As David Martin says, "I have never minded particularly making a fool of myself," so he is never at a loss to illustrate his points or to make a connection with the kids. In his intera ...more
