for Five Little Piggies by David Martin and Susan Meddaugh
Ever wonder about those five little piggies? Why the first one went to market and the second one stayed home? Why one had roast beef, while another seemed to go hungry? And what was up with all that wee- wee-wee-ing? David Martin had created a completely plausible context for it all in a hilarious story that casts all five little piggies as siblings with a wonderfully patient and understanding mother. Each of the five is given his or her own short chapter, delightfully illustrated by Susan Meddaugh, who is greatly skilled at drawing pigs that look remarkably like children we all know. (Ages 3-6)

We all know the familiar story -- or do we? Why did one piggy go shopping, while another stayed behind? And what could have sent the littlest piggy running at such a fast clip toward home? Now David Martin spills the whole hoggy truth in five little stories, each hilariously illustrated by Susan Meddaugh, creator of Martha Speaks, Martha Calling, and other popular picture books. Children will adore this zany take on a favorite game!
