Cerasi, Chris The Angry Birds Movie: Too Many Pigs Harper, 2016. $3.99 EARLY READER Content: G.
Red is suspicious of a boat when it shows up to the island he lives on. The two pigs who get off the boat win over the rest of the birds on the island, but Red starts to realize that there are more than two pigs. He goes to the pig’s boat and finds it full of pigs. When Red tries to warn the other birds that there is going to be a pig invasion nobody will listen to him. The book ends by saying that Red will find a solution to the pig problem, but he doesn’t find a solution by the book’s end.
This book tells part of the story from the new Angry Birds movie. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the pigs will get the attention of Angry Bird lovers. The story is disappointing because it doesn’t really have an ending.
