Summary of I Know A Wee Piggy Summary of I Know A Wee Piggy Reviews for I Know A Wee Piggy An Excerpt from I Know A Wee Piggy
A clever, colorful read-aloud in the tradition of I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

A fun day at the fair becomes color chaos when one boy's energetic pig gets loose. Upside down, piggy wallows in brown, but that's only the beginning of this cumulative, rhyming text. Soon, he's adding a rinse of red (tomatoes), a wash of white (milk), a pinch of pink (cotton candy), and many more. Can piggy be caught before he turns the whole fair upside down?

With exuberant art by Henry Cole, this wild pig chase is a natural choice for teaching colors and begs to be read aloud.


"A surefire winner." — School Library Journal, starred review


"Youngsters will eagerly join in and sing along with the cumulative verse and laugh out loud with the lovable piggy as he scampers throughout the fair, wreaking havoc everywhere he goes. This gleefully messy pig will prompt endless re-readings." — Kirkus Reviews
