Young readers and dog lovers will delight in Aaron Blabey's bestselling Pig the Pug series. Each story is written in playful rhyme with lively illustrations and features the adorable but selfish pug, Pig, who comes to see the value of sharing, honesty, sportsmanship, and more. Following mischief and mayhem — like cheating in a kibble eating contest, lying to his best friend, Trevor the dachshund, and being unwilling to share his toys — Pig always learns his lesson and finds out how to be a little kinder.
For instance, in Pig the Rebel, Pig gets sent to obedience school after years of antics. With the help of his new friends, Pig makes a break and attempts to escape. Will Pig the Pug ever learn from his mistakes? Meanwhile, Pig the Slob is about Pig lounging on the couch, too lazy to get up and go outside to play with Trevor. Everyone has lazy days once in a while, and your children will relate to Pig's mood — but also the motivating factor that got Pig off the couch.
The Pig the Pig series is hugely popular and a favorite for a reason: It will keep your child entertained while they learn valuable lessons that they can then apply to their daily lives.
