Overview

After a close encounter with a smiling worm and a sad-faced fish, it's no wonder that Piggy and Dad invent a new form of fishing that's fair game for everyone!

Piggy is going fishing with Dad for the very first time, and he couldn't be more excited. But when he comes face to face with the bait—an irresistibly cute worm — tenderhearted Piggy starts thinking about the sport in a whole new way. In this warm, funny father-son tale, the popular Piggy and Dad move on from a Brand New Reader format to their first full-length picture book, one that's sure to have loyal fans hooked — and that will reel in new friends as well.

When his dad takes Piggy fishing for the first time and Piggy ends up feeling sorry for the worms and the fish, they decide to make some changes.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another possible Father's Day selection, Piggy and Dad Go Fishing by David Martin, illus. by Frank Remkiewicz, marks the third outing of this porcine father-son team. From baiting the hook to falling asleep, the tale follows Piggy to victory; however, the fellow finds he cannot bring himself to keep the fish. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Piggy is very excited about his first fishing trip with his dad. They dig up the worms for bait and go to the river. Piggy could not get the worm on the hook. "The worm smiled at Dad" when he offered to bait the hook so they decided to use bread instead of worms. Martin captures the impatience of children, as well as their excitement when Piggy finally has a bite on his line. Their sense of compassion is awakened when Piggy decides the fish looks sad because he has been caught leading Piggy to invent a new way of fishing, called "feed-the-fish." The watercolor and pencil illustrations depict the fishing venue, complete with a dock from which Piggy and his dad cast their lines. Their expressive faces capture their emotions. This is a delightful addition to the story time shelf. It is appropriate for so many subjects: Father's Day, fishing, and summertime, or even a story hour based on worm stories. 2005, Candlewick, Ages 3 to 6.
—Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Piggy is excited about his first fishing trip with his father. After donning boots, helping to make sandwiches, and digging for worms, the pair set out. All is well until the youngster tries to bait the hook. He cannot bear to hurt the little worm smiling up at him, so they use bread instead. Though his dad explains that he must be quiet and patient for a fish to bite, the antsy tyke repeatedly casts his line until both fishermen fall asleep from a mix of exhaustion and boredom. Piggy is awakened by a tug on the line and, sure enough, he catches a beauty-only to throw it back when he imagines how sad the fish must be. Instead, he invents a new sport of "feed-the-fish fishing," in which he tosses bread balls into the water and they enjoy watching the eager creatures eat their lunch. Dad is such a good sport that the next day they return for more-only this time father, son, and fish feast on a box of doughnuts. The pleasing watercolor-and-pencil cartoons are bright and varied, with both white and colored backgrounds. The front endpapers sport cans of smiling worms while the back ones display an array of mouthwatering doughnuts. Children will appreciate the understanding, bespectacled dad in his wild Hawaiian shirts and empathize with the sensitive little pig.-Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
