Synopsis

What This Story Needs is a Munch and a Crunch by Emma J. Virjan

Join Pig and her friends in another fun read-aloud adventure as they figure out a way to keep the picnic fun and games going, even with a little rain. What this story needs is a pig in a wig baking bread, pouring punch, and meeting a friend for a picnic lunch. But just as the outdoor fun and games get started, a thunderstorm rolls in and it turns out what this story really needs is ...another place to eat! 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.

Reviews

...schools and libraries should plan on picnicking with this pig in a wig. -- Kirkus Reviews [Readers] will want to reread this journey over and over again...Another hit in the series, this offering is sure to fly off the shelf. -- School Library Journal Virjan's brightly colored charcoal artwork, populated by cheery, expressive cartoon creatures, is a great complement for the cumulative rhyme, alliteration, and onomatopoeia, and the cyclical nature of the story will help new readers. -- Booklist Online
