    • Well before the likes of "Failure to Launch" comes this story of Pig Pig, a boy who wants to forever remain a baby. A couple thoughts went through my head: Is Pig Pig's mom a single mother? Pig Pig is seen wearing diapers--does his mom still have to change them? Does Pig Pig's mom subconsciously WANT her youngest child to remain a baby forever and therfore enables it?Okay, maybe I'm overanalyzing the book. :-)Pig Pig Grows Up might have been written quite some time ago, but I see so many "mommys [...]


    • Pig Pig does not want to grow up. He's outgrowing his crib, his clothes, his stroller, and everything else. On a trip home from the grocery store, Momma collapses as she tries to push the heavy stroller with Pig Pig and the groceries. What happens next calls for a grown-up reaction. Will Pig Pig be forced to grow up? A cute book with amusing illustrations. I look forward to reading more of the Pig Pig books.


    • Kind of old (which I realize is a relative term), kind of weird, and just kind of great. I love this book. I have loved it since the first time I read it to my oldest son. Like I said, it's weird. It's about a pig named Pig Pig who refuses to grow up. And yet it's charming and funny and victorious. At least I think so. I will never get rid of my copy.


    • Susan was right: I did like this one better than Pig Pig Gets a Job (and I think my 6yo liked it better, too). But nevertheless, Pig Pig is nowhere near the pantheon of the David McPhail canon.


    • A great easy to read, coming of age book for preschoolers and kindergartners. The illustrations are bright and simple, the dialogue equally simple. I read this to my preschool classes and they all loved it.


    • Pig Pig is the baby of the family and does not want to grow up no matter what his mother tries to do. This is a good way for younger children to see that growing up isn't a bad thing to do.


    • It must have been good because I saw the name "Pig Pig" on a spine while browsing the library's children's section and suddenly wanted desperately to find Pig Pig again. Here he is!



    • I read this to my daughter (she's eight).We both thought the story was cute and original. However, she enjoyed the artwork more than anything.


    • Our whole family would read this book and laugh at the pictures of Pig Pig squishing into the stroller and baby seats. Very funny book.



    • It taught us to be brave.---Andrea and AndersonThe pig learned his lesson to grow up---Avelyn Declan learner: Don't be a babyThe pig was being brave.---Jack


    • LOVE this book. And so does my daughter. It's lyrical and fun - best of all, I can re-read often and not tire of it. We enjoy all of McPhail's books.
