Readers who will like this: Children who like funny stories, beginning readers
Rating/Response: 5 The story and the pictures were both very funny. I read this book with a young girl during my immersion experience and she loved it! This book has just the perfect amount of silliness and is a great first chapter book.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: What do you think life would be like if you had a pig in your house?
