Author and Illustrator: Aaron Blabey
Age Recommendation: Pre-School/ Kinder
Art Style: Hand Drawn
Topic/ Theme: Personal Hygiene
Setting: A House (and the bathroom in it)
Series: Pig the Pug

Pig and Trevor are back moving away from their other references (which my librarian mother and I have sometimes speculated about, 7 deadly sins maybe?) and into the lessons kids sometimes struggle with, cleanliness and personal hygiene. It does a wonderful job. Making kids want to do the right thing.

This is fan

I love the Pig the pug books. They are just fun. And this book is so true to life. Well, except my dad’s pug likes to get baths. However, all my other dogs act exactly like Pig, so i get it. The rhymes and and cadence are spot on, the story funny, and the illustrations on point. A story to make anyone laugh that should be on all our shelves.

This book is so cute! It is about a pug named Pig who refuses to take a bath to get clean. He ends up causing the bathroom to explode!! After that he has no problem taking baths but still finds a way to be foul!

I really like this book! I love the illustrations and I definitely want to get a hold of the rest of the series after reading this one!

I would use a text-to-self activity with this book in my classroom! The sheet says to find something that Pig doesn't like to do and then find something

This book was so funny! It made me chuckle. Pig the Pug books are always cute but this one was exceptionally good.
Melanie Dulaney
Blabey’s Pig the Pug series has been a great tool for showing the wrong in being a sore loser, trying to steal the spotlight, and being selfish as Pig displays the bad side and Trevor the dachshund shows the right thing to do. The artwork is detailed and expressive and the text rhythmic and descriptive. Pig the Stinker is a little different. The illustrations are just as fabulous and the text just as lilting, but this time, it’s focus is on the messy and filthy behaviors of the poorly behaving p ...more

Carefree, easy rhyme makes this latest pug installment a pleasure to read. One of the better chapters of Pig's life story in picture books. Must be something about all the grubby nastiness about it, but I loved it as I'm certain mud-loving, bottom-burping pre-schoolers will, too. ...more

While I love Pig the Pug (and very patient Trevor), this was not the most memorable escapade for the duo. Trevor definitely puts up with a lot in this book when Pig decides he's too cool for a bath. ...more

Rollicking, rhyming text with humorous illustrations come together to make a fun picture book that is sure to get plenty of giggles from young readers. Pig, the naughty Pug from the Pig the Pug series, loves rolling around in stinky messes. And he absolutely hates to have a bath (dog owners will be able to relate to this). As the dog makes and even bigger mess trying to avoid the tub, it might be fun to stop and have young readers make predictions. It might even inspire young writers to create t ...more

{My thoughts} – I have not read any of the previous books in this series before. I am thankful that I read through books before I share them with my children. This book is a funny book about a dog that just refuses to get a bath. He is messy and dirty and makes a mess out of things.

The cover has Pig the Pug on it wearing a shower cap. It’s nicely colored and about what you’d imagine of a dog getting ready for a bath. The words within the pages go nicely with the illustrations. However, I am not

Recommends it for: Fans of Pig the Pug / Readers Looking for Children's Stories with a Sharp Sense of Humor
Pig the Pug, the worst-behaved canine in the world, returns in this sixth picture-book devoted to his (mis)adventures. Having demonstrated his general nastiness, dishonesty, hyper-competitiveness, greed, and vanity in the previous installments of the series, here he displays a total disregard for good hygiene. In short, he stinks, and his family's efforts to bathe him produce the usual naughty hi-jinks and eventual disaster for our puggish anti-hero...

Like its predecessors, Pig the Stinker pairs

Pig the Stinker by Aaron Blabey. PICTURE BOOK. Scholastic, 2018. $15. 9781338337549

BUYING ADVISORY: EL (K-3) - ADVISABLE

AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH

Told with impeccably well cadanced text, Pig the Pug books are fun to read aloud. In this one, Pig is starting to stink but will not take a bath. When he ultimately makes the bathroom explode, he finally gives in and gets clean (only to then pass gas in the bathtub).

Kids love this naughty, but also strangely charming pug. The book does use the word “butt”

I am a big fan of Pig. This one is lots of fun! Pig is nasty and needs a bath. He dodges the bullet every way he can. The illustrations are very funny and will keep kids laughing. Great read-aloud. Highly recommended for Grades K-2.

PIG THE STINKER follows Pig the Pug on a new adventure- bath time! Pig does not like to bathe, and it’s clear he’s pretty gross. When his owner tries to give him a bath, Pig does everything he can to avoid it and even makes the bathroom explode! However, he ends up getting a bath in the end.

With rhyming text and fun illustrations, this book will certainly appeal to the young elementary audience who will giggle along with Pig’s ant

Summary: This is a fun fiction book written by Aaron Blabey. This fun little pug is oh so dirty but when it comes to bath time he runs away. Aaron tells a fun story about a pug named Pig. Pig is the dirtiest dog, but that doesn’t bother him. Throughout the story his owners are trying to give him a bath, but he refuses each time.

Analysis: I loved reading this book because it is just so fun and silly. I think this is something that children will enjoy because this is an even that may be easy for

Pig was always stinking and he had a stench. Pig had really bad hygiene which made many of the other dogs look at him in a certain way. His owners decided to give Pig a bath but he did not listen. He was very hyperactive so he did everything he could to avoid getting a bath. He tried and tried and tried until the bathroom exploded. This book was a good book to show kids what happens when your personal hygiene is not met. It also shows the consequences of what can happen when you continue to not ...more

This book is hilarious, both the words and the illustrations! I think that many children can relate to not wanting to take a bath. With the witty and sly pug named Pig, he shows how stinky it is to not take a bath! From my experience, most children love books that use 'potty' talk because they think it is hilarious. This is a perfect book for children who like those type of stories and it is also an easy read. This story also includes vocabulary that children can learn because it gives examples ...more

“You won’t get your soapy old water on me!”

Pig doesn’t like to have a bath. In fact, “his personal hygiene was far from OK.” He would play in the much, drink out of the toilet and generally stink up the place. But when his owner calls “Bath time!” Pig runs away “He has a devious knack for ducking and weaving ...” He then devises a plan to stop the water from coming into the bathtub. He doesn’t count on the explosion. Oops.

Funny. Kids will love the potty humor and the goofy illustrations.
