Piggie's in the Pumpkin Patch by Mary Peterson and Jennifer Rofe
The piggies are having great fun barrelling around the farmyard until they venture into forbidden territory...
Charlesbridge has published a very cute children's picturebook and provided me with a copy for review (thank you). This softcover is available in local bookstores right now, and would work great for a Halloween read. No ghosts or witches, but lots of pumpkins and danger!
The pigs are all roly poly and have been hanging out in the pumpkin patch with Mom. But when Mom takes a nap, they escape... Their trip through the farmyard will make young ones laugh and they will want to read this book again and again. Even after they scare themselves to death, they still had fun.
It's well illustrated with a fun story. This would be good for children from ages 1-4. And it will teach them to be careful when they are playing, too.
