"Jillian, Jillian, Jillian Jiggs! It looks like your room has been lived in by pigs!" In the first of award-winning author and illustrator Phoebe Gilman's delicious Jillian Jiggs books, this absolutely irrepressible youngster tries again and again and again to set her mind to cleaning up her very messy room. She promises her mother that she'll clean up just as soon as she's through dressing up, but having fun keeps getting in the way. Whether Jillian and her friends are pretending to be pirates scouring the seven seas for treasure, monsters, witches, or fairies with dainty wings, there's always another game to be played or costume to be tried on. Gilman's bright watercolour illustrations perfectly capture the fun that Jillian and her friends have dressing up. Young readers are sure to be won over by Gilman's lively rhyming text and her equally playful pictures. And fans will want to check out The Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs, Jillian Jiggs to the Rescue, and Jillian Jiggs and the Secret Surprise. (Ages 3 to 6) --Jeffrey Canton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

the book rhymes, which is amazing for reading out loud, or for singular readings, the flow is nice. the illustrations are great too, the characters look like they're having fun. the way they're drawn conveys a lot of energy and excitement, and yet the drawings are simple... i guess they kind of remind me of children themselves, not a whole lot to them, but invest your time and you'll have more than your share of fun.
this whole series is great. i recommend.
