Perfect Picture Book Friday
Pug Meets Pig (Beach Lane Books, 2016) by Sue Lowell Gallion and illustrated by Joyce Wan is one of those deceptively simple picture books that is so satisfying. (Don't you love the cover?)
Pug is happy with everything in his life until Pig comes along. Pig takes over Pug's food, bed, and yard, so Pug can't stay there. But when Pug escapes and Pig is unhappy, Pug has to help.
Cute story and text. Relatable for any child who has had to make room for a new someone.
This is author Sue Lowell Gallion's debut book. A sequel called Pug & Pig Trick or Treat comes out in late July. Sue was interviewed last month on Cynthia Leitich Smith's blog, Cynsations. You might also want to read Sue's post on the birth of a book.
Joyce Wan, who illustrated this book and the sequel, is an author/illustrator with 20 books to her credit. She also does greeting cards. Go to her site here for more information. You can also read about all the new books and a very personal special project that Joyce released last summer here.
