The Lovereading4Kids comment
Bestselling author Louis Sachar is back with a stunning new novel, which all begins with a hat…The hat Laura Sibbie buys from an old man in the street that says Pig City on the front and so Pig City is what Laura calls her club. Each member has to give Laura something embarrassing to stop them telling anyone else about the club. But things don’t go according to plan and soon there’s a club called Monkey Town in the class too. Pig City wittily captures the complex dynamics of classroom life.
Pig City by Louis Sachar
'What was Pig City?' thought Laura. Soon it would be something that everyone wanted to be part of Laura Sibbie is trying to find the perfect 'pigs' for her new club, Pig City: classmates who can keep the biggest secret ever! But to make sure that none of them tells anyone else about the club, each one must give an 'insurance' - something totally embarrassing - to be hidden unless they break the most important law of Pig City. As Pig City grows and the 'pigs' rule the school, the 'insurances' get more daring and when hotshot Gabriel finds out about the club, life gets more risky for the 'pigs' and more complicated for Laura. Is something terrible going to happen? Now there is a new club around, Monkey Town, and they are going to turn Pig City upside down.
