Ten Hungry Pigs by Derek Anderson - ADVISABLE

Anderson, Derek Ten Hungry Pigs.  PICTURE BOOK.  Orchard Books (Scholastic), MAY 2016.  $17. 

One Pig is ready to sit down with is duck friend and eat a perfectly satisfying peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Until – nine more pigs come along with, each with a crazier idea of what to add to the sandwich.  Pig one gets more and more frustrated with each addition until someone comes along to scare them all away.

I have to admit, I was into expecting much from the hungry pigs and I was totally wrong – so very, very cute!  It’s a nice look at “too many cooks spoil the broth”. The surprise at the end was a perfect touch.  I would love to read this with a group with a document camera so that everyone can see it up close and personal.
