Pig and Pug by Lynne Berry


Pig and Pug by Lynne Berry

Pig and Pug are petite and portable pets-one in a pocket, one in a purse. They are also two spunky spirits: Pug, rather pugnacious; Pig, a bit pigheaded. When these two meet, bickering, chasing, and even some mud wrestling ensue. But after some creative compromises, Pig and Pug manage to settle their differences and become friends...at least for the time being.


An excellent choice for new readers...Bravo, Pig and Pug! Kirkus Reviews *STARRED REVIEW A fun addition to most picture book collections. School Library Journal Expressive illustrations [make] for an eye-catching layout. The alliterative language and wordplay with pug and pig lend themselves to reading aloud and will appeal to children who like their humor on the slapsticky side. Booklist Aside from the lip-smacking delight of reading this title aloud, the book's tightly controlled vocabulary and frequent repetition will suit emerging readers to a t-or a p.
