Pig was a Pug, and I’m sorry to say…. If I could have a dollar for every time I’ve heard that lately!

I bought this book a couple of months ago because it was CBCA shortlisted for Early Childhood Book of the Year this year (aka one of the Book Week books)

OK no you got me, I bought it because it has a sausage dog in it, and we LOVE sauso dogs!

Either way, we love this book so much that we now own both in the series, which we hope keeps growing, Pig The Pug and Pig the Fibber.

Both books are super easy to read and apparently for Miss 3, very easy to memorise. I love the moral for each story being to share or not to tell fibs.

The illustrations are big and bold and we spend quite a bit of time on each page talking about what’s going on, and what “flipping your wig” means.

I’d recommend this book for reading to babies and toddlers, right up to school age kids learning to read. The website suggests for 3-10, but under 3’s will still like it I think.

It’s written by Aussie Aaron Blabey who has quite a few books to his name now which I’m keen to get my hands on now these two have been such a hit.
