There’s a Pig in My Class!

We rated this book:


In this book a pig wants to go to school and the children distract this girl named Tall Tina. They get inside with the pig and he has lunch. Later, the pig tries to wash, but he slurps water all over himself. Tall Tina tells them to take off his sweater. Now is my favorite part. Tall Tina says, “There’s a pig in my class.” Tall Tina gets him out of class. The kids pet the pig until Tall Tina says to stop. They say goodbye and Pig imagines hearing the children’s thumping feet. Will Pig be lonely forever?

The best part of the book is that even though Pig doesn’t get to come back to school, the story still made me happy at the end. I think young kids like me would find the story funny and happy. I think it was nice that they brought the pig into the classroom because it made him feel happy. The funniest part is how Honey Hair makes so many big distractions to sneak pig around. The pictures kind of look like they were colored in crayon by the kids in the story and that is neat. I also like that they didn’t know the names of the kids, so they call them things like Honey Hair and One Child. The main character of the book is the pig which is unusual for a book about a class room.
