Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
After considering several possible vocations in Goodnight PiggyWiggy, the porcine hero thoroughly imagines one career in Fire Fighter PiggyWiggy by Christyan and Diane Fox, including rescuing his teddy bear from the top of the leaning tower of Pisa and "cool[ing] everyone down on a hot sunny day" (the accompanying illustration shows the hero dousing his stuffed animals with a hose).

Children's Literature
What do you want to be when you grow up? Pose this question to toddlers and fire fighter will often be the answer. Piggy Wiggy is an appealing little piglet that shares the same childhood dreams. As he watches a fire engine race down the street, Piggy Wiggy dreams of the things he would do if he were a fearless fire fighter. He thinks of wearing a fire hat and sliding down a pole to rush to an emergency in the fire engine, with lights flashing and sirens screaming. He wonders if he could climb up a ladder to save someone, or rescue someone who is stuck in a deep hole. And, of course, it isn't all work. Piggy Wiggy could spray water on his neighbors on a hot day and help them cool off with the same hose he would use to put out a roaring fire. Piggy Wiggy knows what to do when he has a small, but real, emergency. He calls the real fire fighter. The illustrations are done in bold primary colors and the text is simple, making this a story toddlers will enjoy more than once. 2001, Handprint Books, $9.95. Ages 2 to 5.

PreS-PiggyWiggy dreams about what being a firefighter would be like. "I would wear a big yellow hat and slide down a shiny pole on my way to an emergency-and ride around in a big red fire engine with a flashing light and a screaming siren." An emergency is never clearly defined, only alluded to, even though at story's end PiggyWiggy takes solace in the fact that in a real emergency a real firefighter can be called. Adults will have to elaborate on the concept in order for this book to be an effective starting point for discussion. The cartoon illustrations are big and colorful. The front endpapers show Piggy along with many items associated with firefighters. An appealing addition to toddler colletions.-Linda M.

Kirkus Reviews
Colors of bottomless saturation will have readers of this elementary fantasy from the Foxes rocking back on their heels. PiggyWiggy is a cute little pig (and a British import) who dreams of what he would do if he were a fearless fire fighter. He would, of course, don a big yellow hat and slide down a pole on his way to rescuing someone-in this case, PiggyWiggy's teddy-from a very high place (like the Leaning Tower of Pisa). Or he might "save someone stuck down a deep dark hole" (teddy again) or cool down a bunch of kids on a hot day or, certainly, douse a blazing fire. Then again, considers PiggyWiggy, should he actually need a fire fighter, he's glad to know "a real life fearless fire fighter" will race to his rescue, which here appears to be the need to have his pool filled. Oversized pages of heavy stock and type that can't be missed clearly aim this at a very young audience, who might want to emulate PiggyWiggy's fun. The playful action is captivating, as are the minor heroics, but it is the artwork's chromatic fireworks that do all the heavy lifting, and they are simply dazzling. (Picture book. 2-5)
