I find this book and this author, very funny and children would love it too. I believe children could identify with the pig, who loves to create a mess and has many unfinished projects but loves pancakes and syrup. The illustration is eye-catching and comical and creates a very human-like animal on each page. What's so enjoyable about this author is how one things leads to another and another but lending it to a very busy and imaginery mind.

This is a good book to discuss about cleaning up after making a mess and what to do to clean up. I would read the story once and then re-read it again, staying on pages where the pig made a mess. I would ask the children what would the pig need to do to clean up his mess and where would things belong.
