Pig is up to his usual shenanigans in Aaron Blabey's book, Pig the Star.


You would think after all the trouble he has gotten himself, throughout all of the other Pig the Pug books in this beloved series, that selfish Pig would learn from his mean ways. 


But, if one thing is consistent with Pig, it is that he will never, ever learn from his mistakes. Pig is, and always will be, all about himself. He is selfish, and he is mean. Plus, Pig never seems to find it in his hurt to be kind to his fellow pup, Trevor.


In Pig the Star, Pig and Trevor are the featured pups in a photography shoot. Quickly, Pig does his thing. Instead of sharing the spotlight with Trevor, Pig steals the front light in every single shot.


Quickly, things turn into full Pig chaos. But with every Pig the Pug book, Pig's selfish ways gets the best of him and a photoshoot mishap makes Trevor the standout star. 

A sign of a great series is that it can be read and loved by all ages, from young children all the way to grown adults. Aaron Blabey's Pig the Pug books are just this type of beloved series, and I have no doubt that it will someday join some of the greatest childhood classics, such as the Clifford and Curious George Series.


This series is an absolute favorite in both my home and my classroom. I am positive the kids in your life will love these books too!
