Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Wendell Fultz's mother is tired of telling him to clean his room; she says that from now on it's his responsibility. When he finds a pig in the room one afternoon he's excited. Now he can live the way he wants to. More pigs come and they play Monopoly until late at night and leave everything on the floor. But when Wendell finds hoofprints on his posters and his baseball cards chewed up, it's TOO MUCH. He asks his mother for help, and she hands him a broom. Wendell organizes his troops-many hooves make light work-and when the room is clean, the pigs call their farmer to come and get them.
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
This story touches a familiar chord in all who live with mess. Wendell Fultz's room is so full of clutter that Mom calls it a 'pigsty.' Moms are always right. One day Wendell finds a pig reading a comic book on his bed. Soon a herd of pigs appears causing more mess and damaging his favorite comic books and baseball cards. Enough! Time to clean! The pigs are scene-stealers. Invite them to your house next. Who knows?
Ilene Cooper
What a great read for all little piggies! Kids will certainly relate to Wendell Fultz, who refuses to clean up his room and is delighted when several fat porkers arrive to share his "pigsty"--as his mother so witheringly deems his room. But pigs are pigs, and soon even Wendell is getting annoyed with hoofprints on the comic books, chewed-up baseball cards, and, come night, pigs hogging the blankets. The book's ending falls a little flat--Wendell organizes a cleanup in which the pigs take part, but it hastens their departure. Still, especially evident in the artwork, there's enough fun to carry the story. From the dust jacket picture featuring two firm and fully packed pigs throwing open the door to Wendell's bedroom to the fond farewell the oinkers offer before climbing into a pickup, the pictures are loaded with laughs. Fun for kids and the adults who pick up after them.
