In this nearly wordless book, a little pig is getting ready for a nice calm bath all by himself. As he settles into the warm water, the door is opened by a sheep who brings a toy boat and climbs into the bath too. The next to enter is a cow, who asks the sheep if she can join and the sheep agrees. Cow brings a beach ball in, which bounces right off of the pig’s head. Then comes donkey who wears a floaty around his waist and hops into the bath too. The bath is noisy and crowded and not what pig w ...more

Pig is looking forward to his bath. He climbs in, stretches out and closes his eyes in bliss. However, then comes a knock on the door. In comes Sheep with her toy boat and she climbs into the bath with Pig and happily splashes. Then comes another knock and another, until the bath is full of noisy, splashing animals. Pig is not happy. How can he get rid of them? Read Oink to find out.

This is not David Elliot's first picture book featuring a pig. Both Henry's Map and Henry's Stars are
There's nothing quite as relaxing as a warm bath at the end of the day. Pig has just settled into the tub in anticipation of a blissful soak when he is interrupted by a knock at the door. One by one, various animals decide to share the bath with him, and the tub becomes increasingly crowded and noisy. Pig puts up with these intrusions, but his facial expression shows just how frustrated he is. Young readers will giggle as they realize what he does to get all his unwanted guests to leave so he ca ...more
David Elliot has created a book for children that tries to explain the issue with global warming. Well, if not global, at least in the tub. Oink appears to be a story about uninvited guests - those that crowd that cute pink pig's relaxing soak. Pig solves his overcrowded bath . . . how would you say . . . creatively?, non-environmentally friendly?, naturally? Great pictures! Few words (animal sounds, really)! Silliness!

A wordless picture book. Miss 4 liked the facial expressions and giggled at the farts.

Miss 4 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors.

This book is the best mostly wordless (only animals noises) that I have read all year. It is so funny when someone toots in the tub. The last page made us laugh! Illustrations are super cute as well!

This nearly wordless book is a hoot! Poor little pig wants some relaxing alone time and everyone else thinks it's time for a water play date. The pictures are simple yet perfectly convey both the animals' delight and their disgust.

A bathtub full of critters and quite a mess!

I just wish the bubbles were a little more clear at the end? It looks a little more like steam... I still giggled, though...

I’ve never been a fan of bathroom humor picture books, but this almost wordless book (except for animal sounds) did make me laugh. Pig is very clever about how he gets his bathtub back to himself.
An almost wordless picture book of a pig just trying to take a bath and the many animals that decide to join.
