Book Description

Feb. 1 1992 Classic Munsch

Megan is told to feed the pigs, but not to open the gate. She does of course, and the results are hilarious as the pigs help themselves to coffee and the newspaper at the breakfast table, follow Megan to school, and ride home by way of the school bus. Full-color illustrations.

2.0 out of 5 stars "dumb" through out the book April 4 2014
By jives
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
The word "dumb" written throughout the book, and although the meaning of the story is that pigs are not dumb, I did not feel like having my 2 1/2 year old going to daycare and calling the other kids "dumb" since it would have been her nearly learned word.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not his best July 7 2002
By A Customer
My 3 1/2 year old daughter is a huge Munch fan and likes this one well enough, but it's my least favourite. She tends to memorize books and quote them constantly, and I'm not thrilled with the "hey, you dumb...." mantra. This is kind of minor, but how was it that the pigs showed up at school after Megan locked them back in at home? If you're wanting to add to your Munch collection, he's written better. Alligator Baby and Thomas's Snowsuit are fun without the insults and a little more logically consistent.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK!! Sept. 15 1998
By A Customer
My teacher read PIGS to my class. A girl said that pigs aren't smart. I think that pigs are smart! When I grow up if decide to be a book publisher, I would publish a book like this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy April 4 2011

If you're interested in Robert Munich books, pay special attention to whether they say "mini" or not. I didn't notice it on the description and still don't notice it, maybe I'm going blind, but these books are TINY! I was so disappointed!
