Harrington stays true to the cadence of the original, and his crisp, digitally drafted toes—lightly personified with smiling faces (well, toenails) and various accessories—embody the story’s off-kilter sense of humor.

Synopsis

Children and parents will find lots to laugh about in indie-rocker Tim Harrington’s first picture book, This Little Piggy. Everybody knows the this-little-piggy game—the big toe is the little piggy who went to market, and the baby toe is the little piggy who went wee wee wee all the way home.
 
But what about the toes on the other foot? It turns out none of those piggies is eating roast beef…. One is playing the drums. One is riding a go-kart. One is dancing. One is flying a plane. And one of the little piggies has built a rocket ship and is traveling into outer space!
 
Now that Les Savy Fav’s Tim Harrington has added his own hilarious twist, the game of this-little-piggy will never be the same. There is also a free song online that parents can download to go along with the text.
