Yes, Pig the Pug is greedy! His greed is almost too much for me and I was hoping that he would have a change of heart, like the Grinch. It’s Christmas Eve and Pig has his friend Trevor over. Trevor is sweet and he tries to persuade Pig to do the right thing but Pig is greedy. The two are looking at their lists for Santa and Trevor has written on a piece of paper that he would like “something nice” for Christmas. Pig’s Christmas list is a scroll, amounting to what Toys R Us would have on their search engine. He wants everything! Trevor heads off to bed but Pig is not thinking about sleep, he wants to see Santa and all his presents. As Santa arrives and leaves the gifts for Pig and Trevor, Pig is not happy with what he receives and he lets Santa know. I think some children will laugh when they read this book about Pig as it is extreme and ridiculous what he does but I got tired of his attitude. I liked Trevor more as he knew what to do and he tried to influence his friend but he wasn’t mean or domineering. I think I have had enough of Pig.
