Pug meets Pig by Sue Lowell Gallion, illustrated by Joyce Wan

I admit that I am not fond of pugs - but I do like Joyce Wan's cute illustrations and they are perfectly suited to the round cuteness of pugs (and pigs).

Pug has a happy home. He has a yard, a bowl, work, and a bed. But one day....Pig appears! Pig eats his food, makes friends with the cat, and sleeps in his bed! Pug is ready to leave when he discovers he can get into the house - without Pig! Will Pug leave Pig alone forever?

Joyce Wan's sweet, round illustrations are just right for the pouting pug and cheerful pig. Everything is round and cozy - the faces of the people passing by, the house, even the trees. Gallion's short, simple sentences would work equally well as an easy reader for beginning readers as well as a read-aloud.

Verdict: Kids will giggle over the gentle humor and enjoy the sweet illustrations in this delightful book. A good addition to your library collection.
