The genial, bright, colored-pencil illustrations can’t save this forcibly rhymed text. Piggy never learns to say no; she plans to play with her tormentors tomorrow.

Synopsis

A little pig is ready for a big day of swimming—she's packed a huge bag stuffed with toys, books, towels, hats, food, and more. But friends keep stopping the little pig on the way to the water. A dog borrows her flotation ring, a cat needs her sunhat, and a crocodile demands the little pig's sunglasses. A badger even gobbles up all the cookies—and the little pig just can't say no! But when she falls into mud and all the animals laugh at her, the little pig is fed up. She loses her temper and finally shouts NO. Will the friends she helped now help the little pig? And will she ever get to go swimming?

The Story of the Little Pig Who Couldn't Say No is perfect for children who find it difficult to stand up to their own friends. Young readers and their parents will giggle at Sabine Wilharm's bright, energetic illustrations and will love Sabine Ludwig's sweet writing, translated by Connie Stradling Morby. This is the perfect book to share with children during lazy summer days or right before bed.
