Synopsis

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. The What This Story Needs... books are bright and lively and inspire giggles. A story with echoes of Seuss and Willems, School Library Journal said in a starred review of What This Story Needs Is a Hush and a Shush.

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.
