1 Review
Cost is Mr. Pig's game, and the Pigs are celebrating his birthday by putting around the mini-golf course. Along the way, the different shapes of the golf greens give readers an opportunity to explore some simple geometry concepts like angles and parallels, as well as to learn to recognize circles, octagons, hexagons, and more. Add in a surprise birthday cake, free pizza, and a banana peel, and you have the kind of comic disaster that only the Pigs could engineer.
