The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal.

The Judges said: A book full of beautifully visualised comic touches. Every line works, and the more you read it, the more you see. The pigs are wonderful comic creations. The text is always part of the picture and the typography perfectly fits the action. Outstanding.

----------

Roll up! Roll up! Kate Greenaway medal winner Emily Gravett will make children laugh uproariously as the foolish pigs risk all. The three circus-owning pigs make the wolf the star of their show. They can make him stand on a stool, jump through a hoop, and be fired from a canon – and still he won’t bite… Watching the wolf’s expression, children will relish the power struggle and love the last laugh!

Synopsis
