This book has a pig. In a wig. You shouldn't need much more info for this to be on your must read list. Silly and fun for everyone.

As if the rhyming title and boldly colored cover weren't enough to clue in readers, this story dives directly into silliness. It begins with the eponymous pig standing in a spotlight to don her red beehive wig. Then she hops into a boat in a moat, which quickly becomes crowded from picking up a frog, a dog, and a goat on a log… With all the cumulative craziness of Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and offbeat humour of Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie series, this easy-to-understand book (the 1st in a new series) is sure to elicit boatloads of giggles from beginning readers.
