Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Often jokes and riddles require a sophisticated knowledge of language since they rely on homonyms and variations of familiar words. The jokes in this early reader will fall pretty flat unless kids know quite a bit about pigs and their habits. If you do not know that a pig is a porker or that ham and bacon come from a pig then many of the jokes will not be the least bit funny. The same is true of words such as snout, squeal, sow, runt, wallow and hog which are all part of pig lore. Therefore, for maximum enjoyment teachers and caregivers might want to make sure that kids are steeped in pig lore before they try to read this book and squeal with delight at the hogwash presented. A Dial "Easy-To-Read" Level 3 book which features harder words and a longer text for kids who are reading on their own. 2004, Dial/Penguin, Ages 6 to 8.
—Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K Gr 4-A new offering from the authors of Kitty Riddles (2000), Dino Riddles (2002, both Dial), and Snakey Riddles (Puffin, 1994). Some of the 34 jokes included may produce a chuckle or two ("What was the hog doing in the kitchen?/He was bacon!"), while others might need adult clarification ("What is a piggy's favorite movie? The Sownd of Music"). Because of the varied levels of sophistication required, children will best appreciate this title if it is read aloud to them; however, many of the riddles lose their humor if they have to be explained. Each entry is accompanied by a large cartoon, and the pictures and the text are neatly bordered with brightly colored lines. In fact, the most fun aspect of this book is the art, which features expressive pig faces that tell a story in themselves. Newly independent readers may enjoy this volume, even if they do not "get" all of the jokes. An additional purchase.-Deborah Rothaug, Pasadena Elementary School, Plainview, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
