SkyPig is about a pig named Ollie who really wants to fly. But pigs can’t fly. Ollie and his friend Jack keep trying new ideas or inventions, like making wings, a parachute, branches and umbrellas, but each one makes him fall to the ground. Jack never gives up hope, and he finally figures out a way for his friend Ollie to fly in the sky.
I really liked SkyPig but I think the illustrations were my favorite part. They were made out of plasticine, paper, fuzz, and even watch gears. The illustrations were so detailed, I couldn’t stop looking at the pages. These illustrations make me want to make my own plasticine pictures. I really like looking for the mouse and chicken with her egg on every page. I like that even when Ollie failed over and over again, he kept getting up and trying new ideas to help him fly. His friend Jack was a very good friend who was always there to help Ollie follow his dreams.
