Overview

A coiffed and blustery pig has shoved his way into the White House! A cleverly worded and illustrated picture book, this is the adult parody of the beloved children’s cautionary tale, If You Give a Pig a Pancake.

Watch in dismay as the presidential pig gets into trouble, binges on too much Fox News and fast food, and cavalierly threatens national security. If You Give a Pig the White House both lovingly caricatures the original children's book and shows just what can happen when a greedy anti-hero tracks his hooves all over America.

I heard about this book because of people freaking out on social media, and I knew I had to buy it! When I got the book I was glad I did. So many funny little details in the art made this book fun to read many times through.

Love it! Wouldn't worry too much about all the fake negative reviews. If the pigs supporters could read they wouldn't be his supporters.

What makes it even funnier are all the Trumpers reviews thinking it is a children’s book. It never ends with them.

What kind of books are published is not up to barnes and nobles. If you truly feel you do not like this book . Don't purchase it . Instead of not supporting barnes and nobles right to carry all books protest the author/ publisher by voting with your wallet. Barnes and nobles should carry all types of book for people to decide for themselves. I for one found this book hilarious.

Love it! This administration has given satirists so much material to work with, and pretty much all of it is so much more intelligent than the crassness and idiocy thrown at the Obama family primarily because of their race. This book is not for children - it's for adults who understand what this country is going through right now and how much we have lost without decent leadership for almost 3 years. We truly do have a pig in the White House, one who believes whatever criminal behavior he chooses to engage in is just fine. As we watch our formerly-great country's standing in the world lowered by trump's craziness and Congressional Republicans' willful decision to put "party over country", we all need a break to be able to laugh. Hopefully, those around him will recognize the glaring signs of mental decline soon, and understand that he needs to be out of office and into treatment. B&N, as much as the trumpers on this review have screamed that they're "never buying from you again", I don't think you've lost any sales. His base are not folks who are big on books or reading - or education - in general, so it's highly doubtful that they were frequent purchasers to begin with!

Freedom of speech is alive and well despite attempts to silence it. Don't be badgered into removing this by book burners.

This is a fun book. It's worth every penny. I would've enjoyed it more if it were more readable as verse. The artwork could've been more developed.

As hilarious as it is clever! The best humor is based on truth! A pig in the white house, LOL! This is a great gift for the humor-impaired republican in your life.

Lol, good for laughs... glad to see this retailer is not afraid of the deplorable backlash. But who are we kidding, most of them can’t read.

Great book and sadly accurate but hilarious at the same time! All you Trump supporters can go cry in their safe room like they told all those liberals to do.

I loved this book and it couldn't have came out at a better time! It's almost as if it's not a parody at all. I mean, it's almost as if there is a pig in the white house. Fantastic book! It's too bad all of these snowflakes keep giving it a 1 star review, without, I would bet good money, having even read it. Their tears make this book all the better. I can't recommend it enough! It's a fantastic book and it's worth collecting it if for no other reason than to mark the time there was an actual pig in the white house. I plan on giving these out as stocking stuffers this Christmas.

Thanks to the mighty uproar about this book, which I had never heard of prior to the uproar on social media, my interest was piqued, so I went on over to the B&N website and reserved myself a copy to pick up in the store. The cashier at my local branch was lovely, and let me know of another client who had asked for as many copies as she could get her hands on, who also learned about this book thanks to those who oppose the first amendment crying about this book online. She also let me know that no, this book is not in the Children's section of their store as it is not a children's book. It pretty clearly says that on the cover, in fact. I see it's now only available as a Nook download on this website, which means B&N sold out every physical copy they had. I really appreciate the viral campaign bringing this book to my attention! As far as the actual book goes, my teenagers and I laughed and laughed while reading this book. I used to read If You Give A Mouse A Cookie to them when they were small, so there was a lot of fond nostalgia in reading the book. The artwork was great with fun little Easter eggs throughout the book. The attention to detail was fantastic, and the artwork and prose very closely resemble the original series it is parodying. One daughter pointed out that some portions of the book are already outdated, for example Ms. Sanders is no longer the White House press secretary though she is depicted in this book. Turnover sure happens a lot in our current White House! I hope the authors continue writing political parodies. This is something I will be recommending to all of my similarly-minded friends as a great way to have a laugh at the depressing timeline we're in.

A book written by a Bully for the enjoyment of Bullies. But what can one expect these days. This Author and the lowly people finding it amusing prove with certainty that you can't fix Stupid and they are to be pitied. No, I will most certainly not be patronizing Barnes and Nobel in the future since they choose to market trash. A sadly lacking mentality will find this to be amusing.

Since there is no means of leaving a less than 1 star, I have left 1 star. This is reprehensible and disrespectful. We live in a nation where the president is choices by a system established by amazingly wise men and sometimes because of the choice of the people, we all live under a president with whom we disagree. But, there is never a cause for such disrespect! I did not vote for or support a few years back, but I never sunk to this level of disrespect. Why? Because I understand the system. I am extemely disappointed that no one in your corporation has the courage to stand up for what is right and refuse to engage in such childish. I will think twice before purchasing from your company again.

Highly inappropriate and racist! Teaching disrespect for those in authority. I am shocked and disappointed with Barnes and Noble for having anything to do with this book.
