Pig Pig is back with another adventure.

A lion escapes from the zoo. Guess where he ends up? In Pig Pig’s bedroom! And so begins the newest adventure in David McPhail’s beloved Pig Pig series.

While Pig Pig’s mother makes breakfast, Pig Pig and the lion run down the stairs, through the kitchen, over the furniture, and romp around the house. Prepositions abound in this playful story, and an unexpected friendship is forged. But will the lion be able to stay, or will he have to go back to the zoo?

David McPhail’s latest story about the lovable Pig Pig is creative, fun, and imaginative—is the lion real? Can Pig Pig’s mother see it? Readers will have to decide for themselves.

This book is good for your brain because:
Strong picture/text support, word study, use of prepositions, bold print sight words, problem solution, predicting outcomes, promotes imaginative thinking
