When Pigs Fly
So I wish that the book was longer–that’s the thing, because it’s a pretty short book. It was a really good book. I feel like I want to fly too, so maybe I should come up with ideas of how to get in the air. You can just pretend like you’re in the air, and you can make a sky background like in the book. Pig really wanted to fly, but when he said, “All I have to do is flap my wings,” the girl pig said, “You don’t have wings” (maybe that’s his sister). One of pig’s ideas was to attach wings to himself, but it didn’t work. So he kept coming up with ideas to fly, and none of his ideas worked. One of their ideas was using the cardboard clouds that hung from the ceiling and using a cardboard box for their airplane. They used a fan so it blew on them, and it had a cardboard sun in the back, and they used a sheet type thing that’s blue and pinned it to the wall for sky. It was a good idea. Her idea worked…even though they weren’t in the air, they thought they were in the air. Her idea, when they tried it, was not necessarily really flying, but she made it feel like they were flying. It’s just a very nice book, and I think boys and girls would like this book and especially people who want to fly. I would draw the ears on the pig differently so they wouldn’t be on the pig. It doesn’t really bother me, but I wish the pigs had names.
