Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-When Pig was a baby, John Henry took him into the house. Now, Pig is big, and it's time for him to live in the pig house. Cold and lonely, he waddles back to the house. Finally, John Henry takes him to a pig farm. They cycle uphill and down, arriving at their destination late in the day. Then John Henry climbs back on the bicycle for the long journey home. But when darkness falls, he crashes into a tree and falls into a deep hole. He is stuck, lost, hungry, tired, and scared. When he calls out for help, who should arrive but Big Pig! "It's my lovely smelly pig!" cries John Henry. They trudge home, and the porker stays where he belongs-in the house. This delightful story has watercolor and crayon illustrations of the English countryside. John Henry wears Wellies and a checked cap, and the countryside is bordered with stone walls. Big Pig is large and pink with tiny eyes and expressive eyebrows. The characters' postures speak volumes. A warm, wonderful story to share one-on-one or at storytime.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
There comes a time in every life when it's appropriate to pull up stakes and move from the family home. Like, say, you're a pig who has attained porkerhood and takes up a bit too much space in the farmer's living room. In Doyle's gentle tale of the sometimes-rocky road to independence, the farmer squires the big pig to some pleasing new domiciles, but the pig finds them cold and lonely after the security of hearth and home. So he waddles back to the old place. In a last attempt, the farmer takes the pig far, far away to what looks like, in Bendall-Brunello's cheerful watercolors, a pig commune. But it's late when the farmer starts homeward and he gets lost in the forest. Who should save his skin but Pig, who is up to his waddling tricks again. Young readers will be comforted to know that they can always waddle home, even when they've grown to be big critters themselves, and the world out there seems cold and lonely. (Picture book. 3-6)
