What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig by Emma J. Virjan

What this story needs is a pig in a wig, on a boat in a moat with a frog, a dog, and a goat on a log...As a panda in a blouse, a skunk on a trunk, and more hop on board, it becomes clear that what this story really needs is a bigger boat! Join Pig on an exciting boat ride as she discovers that life is more fun with friends in this fantastic funny read-aloud with cumulative text from author-illustrator Emma J. Virjan.


In a story with the echoes of Seuss and Willems, Virjan offers a very funny lesson about the unreliability of narrators. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) A boatload of giggles will keep the reader returning for more easy-to-read fun. -- Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Emma J. Virjan was born under an Aries moon on a Wednesday, her dad's bowling night. She loves to draw and work in her garden, and she often lets her dog sleep on the couch. She makes her home in Austin, Texas, where she spends her days as an illustrator and graphic designer. Unlike Pig, Emma has never worn a wig, but she is thinking of buying one-a red one, of course.
