Pig the pug is a mischievous dog. Everything is about him, he's selfish, demanding and totally out of control. Arron Blabey is my favorite children's author he's incredibly talented and is the number one author that I get asked to read at storytime.

The theme of this story is respectfully travelling through other countries and respecting other cultures. So a very topical book for children but done in that Blabey style that only Pig could convey without making your child feel like they're being talked down to.

Pig the Pug is back and dare I say it, better than ever.

Everybody's favourite little destroyer, Pig the Pug is continuing his adventures in this latest release from bestselling author Aaron Blabey. This time Pig and his family are headed overseas and around the world on what is meant to be the most epic of holidays ... but Pig, being Pig, things never turn out the way they are intended.

I love everything about Pig the Tourist. From Blabey's adorably quirky illustrations to

Not every Pig title wins instant admiration from me, unlike the zillions of school kids this greedy, self-centered, self-indulgent pooch performs for. The Tourist however, appeals to a slightly older crowd I felt and therefore wins sincere laughter and brownie points. As ever, perfect rhyme and ribald illustrations depict Pig in all his glorious irreverent splendor, which one hopes will show the kiddies how NOT to behave when it comes to cultural and environmental appreciation.

Oh Pig! Will he ever learn his lesson? Now he's running amok on holidays, getting into the usual sorts of trouble. I like the incorporation of different cultures and festivals in this episode of Pig's adventures.

Another fun addition to the Pig series. We all know someone who doesn’t travel well. Unfortunately for Trevor, that means even on holidays, Pig manages to spoil things for him. He is still the self-centered Pug we know and love, causing chaos wherever he goes. Kids will love it!

Pig the Pug gets up to all sorts of mischief when he travels. His chaos-causing antics will appeal to children's sense of humour.

Read as part of storytime at work. This is a cute little story—I haven't met any kids who don't like Pig the Pug. The illustrations are pretty simple, but effective and cute nonetheless.
