“Lucy Rigg’s Naughty Pig” is a humorous tale of a pig’s penchant for flowers.
When Pinky Pig hears Lucy Rigg’s flowers sing to the bees about how sweet they are, obsessed, he can’t stop eating them. A cast of farm animals tries to stop Pinky but are no match for a pig who stops to smell the roses, then eats them. Though Lucy turns the tables on her little porker, Pinky tricks her in the end!
An excerpt from the book reads:
“Pinky! Pinky! Pinky! Where are you, little buddy?” That’s Lucy, my best friend. We live on her farm. Today, an amazing thing happened. Now I can hear the flowers singing to the buzzing bees, and ME!
This book’s humor, wordplay and alliteration create story a children will love. When asked what Jacquie wants readers to take away from the book, she answers, “I want kids to laugh and consider— maybe, too much of a good thing is just too much! Both children and their adults can laugh about a “Pinky promise,” holding up their baby fingers in jest, and saying, “Pinky Promise!”
The book’s illustrator, N.D. Engleson, has again captured the wonderful characters Jacquie has created, and brings them to life in vivid color. The illustrations and the prose are woven wonderfully together to create a fun story for everyone.
