A pig in a wig in a boat on a moat attracts many other animals and things… until our pig decides that it is too crowded and she would prefer to be in her boat all alone. But after sending everyone away, she realizes that she made a mistake. Instead, they just need a bigger boat!
This is a sweet story about friendship told in easy-to-read rhyme. Many children will be able to relate to the issue of being overwhelmed by a crowd, too, which I really appreciate.
Interesting that my library shelved this as a picture book instead of an easy reader. I am very curious as to what went into that decision as I feel it has all of the aspects of an easy reader. Either way, this would make a great transition books for those just beginning to read.
I thought this was a very delightful read with simple, bright illustrations! Can’t wait to see more of Virjan’s work.
