Book Review: What This Story Needs Is a Munch and a Crunch



Join Pig and her friends in another fun read-aloud adventure as they figure out a way to keep the picnic fun and games going, even with a little rain.

What this story needs
is a pig in a wig
baking bread,
pouring punch,
and meeting a friend for a picnic lunch.

But just as the outdoor fun and games get started, a thunderstorm rolls in and it turns out what this story really needs is . . . another place to eat!

My Review: Pig in a Wig is meeting friends for a picnic lunch. She prepare baked bread, punch, pies, sandwiches and more food. With plates and blanket added to her basket she was ready to meet her friends at the park. Rabbit and squirrel were there to help set the blanket on the grass while placing the food on the blanket. After a quick bit and decided to pick some apples, play a game of catch and kite.  They sat down to munch and crunch when suddenly, ‘whoosh, boom, plop and splash’, it started to rain.  They quickly grab the blanket and food and headed to a dry place to continue the fun. A simple and fun story for elementary readers. The colorful illustrations helps to tell the story.



FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from HarperCollins in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.



Emma J. Virján was born under an Aries moon on a Wednesday, her dad’s bowling night. She loves to draw and work in her garden, and she often lets her dog sleep on the couch. She makes her home in Austin, Texas, where she spends her days as an illustrator and graphic designer. Unlike Pig, Emma has never worn a wig, but she is thinking of buying one—a red one, of course.
