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)
