K-Gr 2–Pig the pug is back, and he has been a very naughty dog! The story opens on a scene of domestic destruction; oil is spilled all over the rug, and there is a surfboard smashed through the TV set. Pig is dispatched to obedience school, where he meets a hilarious group of dogs and a dog trainer who has no tolerance for any shenanigans. After the first command to sit is bellowed his way, Pig is determined to break out and take the rest of his classmates with him. Absolute mayhem ensues, and an explosive calamity causes a dramatic set of changes to Pig, leaving readers laughing out loud and wondering if our hero can indeed have a true change of heart.
VERDICT Laugh-out-loud funny illustrations will have devotees of the series hoping that Pig hasn’t really transformed and will send new readers looking for previous titles to enjoy the exploits of this unforgettable character.
