3 Pigs' Garage by Peter Lippman


3 Pigs' Garage by Peter Lippman

Peter's Lippman's neighborhood is growing by leaps and bounds. Think Beanie-Babies--or the Beanie-Babies of books. Mini House Books(tm) are sought-after collectibles for children, with the series jumping from 1 million to 2 million copies-in-print in just ten months. Now comes the ninth and latest title-- 3 Pigs' Garage, a story that follows a busy crew of pig mechanics as they fix up their community's cars and trucks while making sure there's enough time for play after work. Featuring a winsome cast of pigs, bunnies, and dogs, this die-cut garage-shaped book will be a delight for every child who loves vehicles--stretch limos, cherry pickers, school buses and tractor trailors. The story is told in lively rhyming verse: All the mechanics/are working away, /fixing flat tires/and saving the day. Any engine can be quite a test./But the bigger the motor/the bigger the mess. Equally charming are Peter Lippman's colorful, whimsical drawings of the animals driving cars, fixing flats, pondering engines, and generally keeping everything in tip-top shape. Fun to hold, fun to leaf through, and fun to read, 3 Pigs' Garage is, like all the Mini House titles, a book to open, enter, and get happily lost in.
