El papá de Marisa le pide que les dé de comer a los cerdos, pero que no abra el portón del chiquero. La niña abre el portón igualmente y el resultado es muy gracioso: los cerdos toman café, se comen el periódico, siguen a Marisa hasta la escuela y vuelven a casa conduciendo el autobús escolar.

    It's fun to read some of these Robert Munsch books that were a little after my time (i.e., I was "too old" for picture books when they came out). I can't even recall hearing about Pigs, but it's pretty funny, with the repetition and amusing pictures that are the hallmark of Munsch/Martchenko collaborations. I like the way Megan goes from tidy to dishevelled as the day wears on (well, she does get trampled by a herd of pigs a few times).

I also like how, in one scene, one of the pigs is eating a book that appears to be a copy of Munsch's I Have to Go! How meta. This would be a great addition to any Munsch collection. Quotable moment: Megan looked in the principal's window. There was a pig drinking the principal's coffee. A pig was eating the principal's newspaper. And a pig was peeing on the principal's shoe. The principal yelled, "Megan, get these pigs out of here!"

    My 7-week old son Aiden loved this book. He was verging on crying when we started, but was smiling and cooing along by the time we finished. Solid five stars!!!

    Personal response- This book Pigs was good. The child I read to was Sydney. When I read it, she enjoyed it and read along. She liked the whole story. She enjoyed the pictures the most, along with the idea of pigs driving a bus. There was really nothing she disliked about the book. The main event was knowing that pigs are smart, not dumb.

There was really nothing she disliked about the book. The main event was knowing that pigs are smart, not dumb. Plot- In this book there are not many plots that occur. The main plot of the story begins with a father telling his daughter, Megan, to feed the pigs without opening the gate. She opened the gate anyway and all the pigs ran out. When she looked for the pigs, she found them in the house. They ran out of the house when she opened the door and then they went to the school. When she found them again, she opened the door to the school and they ran out again. Megan was waiting for the bus. When the bus got to the school a pig was driving with the rest of the pigs in back. The pig drove back into their pen and that is when Megan realized pigs aren’t dumb. Pigs are smart. Characterization- The main character was a girl named Megan. She lived with her parents. Megan was in elementary school. She was skinny with brown shoulder length hair. The other characters were her father, the pigs, the school principal, and her teacher. The author did not describe these characters. Impacts of Setting- There was more than one setting in this book. The first place she was, was in her house. It was a farm house. Then she went to the pig pen, school, and on the bus. Lastly, she was at the zoo. There is no specific date or time of year mentioned. Thematic Connection- The theme of this book was to let the reader know pigs are smarter than you think. It told the importance that you will not always be right about everything. Another thing it taught was to always listen to your parents. Recommend- I would recommend this book to girls and boys as young as second grade and parents of young children. I would recommend it to parents who just want a quick read with their kids or just as a bedtime story. The rating I give Pigs was a four.

    I read the book "Pigs" by Robert Munsch to my little nephew, Landen. He liked this book a lot. He seemed very interested with this story. The story was predicted in the very beginning on what was going to happen with the pigs. The story was about a little girl named Megan. She was getting ready for school when her dad told her to feed the pigs. He only gave one instruction with the task. That task was to not open the gate, because the pigs are smarter than you think.

She was getting ready for school when her dad told her to feed the pigs. He only gave one instruction with the task. That task was to not open the gate, because the pigs are smarter than you think. Megan listened to her dad and went out to feed the pigs. When Megan went out to the pig pen she looked at the pigs and said these are the dumbest looking animals I have ever seen. Megan opened the gate little by little seeing what the pigs would do. The pigs didn't do anything until the gate was open just enough for them to get out. Then all of the pigs were running out of the pen, before she knew it the pigs were gone. Megan then went back to the house where her father was. She neared the house and heard “oink, oink, oink” she looked inside and saw the pigs. There was a pig on the table drinking his coffee and one was eating his newspaper. Megan ran the pigs out of the house. Megan took the pigs to the pen and then ran off to school. She got to school and heard “oink oink oink”. She opened the door, the pigs were in the principal's office eating her newspaper and drinking her coffee. Megan put all the pigs back in the pen, at least she thought she did. When she returned to school she opened her desk and there was a baby pig in her desk. Megan always thought pigs were stupid until that day. There was only one main character in this story and that character's name was Megan. She was a young girl who lived on a farm. The story took place on a small family farm. Neither the location or the time was given in this story. I would recommend this book to be read to younger children around the age of two and up. This book would be perfect for a young reader who was just starting to read. I do not think gender matters for this book.

    I read the book “Pigs” to my nine year old cousin Elizabeth. Overall, she really enjoyed this book. Throughout the book she kept laughing when Megan kept getting run over by the pigs. She also talked about how she thought Megan, the main character in the book, was a troublemaker and she would never do something so ridiculous. Her favorite part about the book was when the pigs peed on a few of the characters shoes. This book is about a young girl named Megan who gets into trouble with some pigs.

Her favorite part about the book was when the pigs peed on a few of the characters shoes. This book is about a young girl named Megan who gets into trouble with some pigs. Her father asks her to feed the pigs but to make sure not to open the gate or they might cause trouble. Sure enough, Megan opened the gate too far and the pigs ran all over town. They went in her house, in her school, and the bus. When she finally rounded up all the pigs and put them back in the pen, she told her father she learned her lesson. In the end she also ended up keeping a baby pig as a house pet. The main character in this story is Megan. She is a fun-loving, curious girl. Her curiosity is what gets her into trouble. Megan’s father is a nice man, but very strict. Megan’s principal seemed to be a very high-strung woman who liked things in perfect order. This story takes place in present time and is realistic fiction. The setting of this book jumps around a bit. The different settings present in this book are Megan’s home, the school, and the bus. I believe the theme of this book is to do as you are told and not disobey. This lesson is learned when Megan opens the gate even after her father told her not to. When she did this, the pigs ran all over the place and caused trouble. When Megan finally got all the pigs back in the pen she realized if she would have just done what she was told, none of it would have happened. I would recommend this book to children in elementary school. This book was a fun, upbeat read and has quite a bit of humor thrown in. It teaches a good lesson and keeps you interested at the same time.

    Personal Response: I think Pigs is a good book to read to children. It’s a silly little book that I think all children would enjoy. I read this book to my seven year old cousin and she loved it. She thought the pigs were silly and enjoyed the pictures. Plot: This book is about a little girl named Megan. Before school, her dad told her to go feed the pigs but to not open the gate. He warned her that the pigs are smarter than they seem. Megan reached the pig pen and looked at the pigs. She thought Personal Response: I think Pigs is a good book to read to children. It’s a silly little book that I think all children would enjoy. I read this book to my seven year old cousin and she loved it. She thought the pigs were silly and enjoyed the pictures. Plot: This book is about a little girl named Megan. Before school, her dad told her to go feed the pigs but to not open the gate. He warned her that the pigs are smarter than they seem. Megan reached the pig pen and looked at the pigs. She thought they were the dumbest animals on the planet. She tested her theory out by opening the gate. She then opened the gate farther and yelled at the pigs. Suddenly, they all ran out and escaped. Throughout this book, she was sent to collect the pigs around her town. Characterization: Megan is the main character in this book. She is a young girl who lives on a farm with her parents. This book is not specific on her age. The other main characters are the pigs. The pigs are very rambunctious and crazy. A minor character in this book is Megan’s dad. He is a strict but loving dad. His occupation is a full time farmer. He isn’t given a specific age. Setting: The story takes place in a small family farm. This setting is important because the story’s main plot is about the pigs on the farm. The story does not specify on the season or specific time of place. Thematic Connection: I think the theme of this book is for others to listen to what they are told to do. Megan portrayed that by not listening to her father when he told her not to open the gate. She faced severe consequences after disobeying him. Recommendation: I would recommend this book to children around the age of three and up. Any gender would enjoy this book. It is an easy read and has great illustrations that the children would love.

    I read “Pigs” to Wyatt Wetzel. Wyatt is a kindergartener at Weyauwega-Fremont Elementary. He thought this book was really funny because it had the word “dumb” on almost all of the pages.

Her father asked her to feed the pigs before she went to school. Her father's big fear was that Megan would open the gate too far and let the pigs out. She goes outside by the pigs, opens the gate just slightly, and the pigs don’t move. Megan says that pigs are the dumbest animal and that they won't move when she opens the gate. She then opens the gate farther and yells at the pigs. All of a sudden she is on the ground, getting trampled. The characters in this book are Megan, her father, the students and the pigs. Megan is the main character throughout this book. It does not state her age or what grade she is in. The pigs are the other main characters in this book because they make the story happen. Her father is a pig farmer. The setting of this book is during the school year. It is not winter, but it is not specified what season. This book takes place in present time at Megan’s home, barn, and school. The theme of this book is to listen and follow what you have been told. Megan showed a bad example of how to not follow directions by letting the pigs out. I would recommend this book to any elementary student that is decent at reading because it is an easy read. This book also teaches a good lesson to children that you need to listen to your parents and teachers.

    Pigs by Robert N. Munsch, illustrated by Michael Martchenko, is another laugh-out-loud story by this talented duo. Megan doesn't follow her father's directions about not opening the gate to the pig pen and hijinks ensue in the kitchen, the principal's office, & on the school bus. The pigs eat newspapers & bus seats, drink coffe, pee on people's shoes, & one drives a bus. Megan calls the pigs dumb several times, but eventually declares that pigs are smart.

There is a hint at the end that Megan may open another gate in the future. The illustrations are a highlight of this book, with hilarious details not mentioned in the text. I would not personally use this for library story time, but think many kids would enjoy reading or hearing it read by parents. For ages 4 to 7, humor themes, and fans of Robert N. Munsch & Michael Martchenko.

    This is a fun and silly book that shows what happens when the pigs are let loose. Our girls really enjoyed this book and laughed often at the absurdity of all the things the pigs do. The illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. Our girls liked watching the story on the Tumblebooks website. (www.tumblebooks.com) Robert N. Munsch is a talented storyteller and he's very entertaining when he narrates his own stories!

    Had to wait for an appointment this morning, and this book was there in the waiting room, so I zipped through it. It's quite cute and amusing, as Meagan learns that pigs are not as dumb as she thinks. Lots of nice humorous detail in the art compensates for the pretty superficial and simple narrative. The final page is especially amusing. Fun book for young readers, but not one of those picture books that adults will enjoy equally, I think.

    The illustrations of the pigs taking over Megan's school sell the book, really. I will note that if you're concerned about the use of the word "dumb" as an insult that you might want to read this book before you buy it. Honestly, though, as insulting the pigs is exactly what gets Megan into trouble, I think the lesson "choose your words carefully" speaks for itself.

    I remember this one from my childhood! one of my favourite Munsch books ever! "HEY YOU DUMB PIGS"! LOL Very interesting to read this now that I'm older and compare it to how I remember it as a child! the illustrations make me laugh! when the pigs are in the house- drinking dads coffee, eating and reading dads paper, there's pigs in the cupboards, pigs everything! so funny! loved it!

    Megan is told to feed the pigs by her father, she does so but underestimates the pigs. her dad tells her not To open the door whatsoever. But as curious as she is, she think the pigs are dumb and won't do anything. The pigs literally followed her to school. Im not sure if the moral of the story was not to underestimate animals but that is what I received. Also if you do not follow your parents wishes there are consequences to come along.

    Maybe it was the e-book experience but there didn't seem to be a logical flow to the story. It seemed to rely too much on the concept of pigs making mischief in unbelievable ways to carry the story. The illustrations of the main character were cute while the illustrations of the pigs sometimes bordered on demonic.

    Pigs! Such a simple little title for this silly book. I think Megan almost learned her lesson about judging an animal based on how it looks. I wonder what kind of trouble that elephant could get into. Those pigs could have taken over the whole city if they wanted to!

    "Pigs" by Robert Munsch is a story about a little girl named Megan. Megan lives with her dad, and has a pig farm at her house, which houses a whole herd of pigs. This story is about how Megan accidentally lets the pigs out of their enclosure and the pigs run all over town, from her house to her school to the school bus.

It is the story of how Megan has to try and get all the pigs back into their enclosure. The major themes of this book is responsibility and listening to instructions, and how not listening to instructions can lead to disaster. I thought this book was a fun way to show children how if you do not listen to instructions your parents give you when they give you responsibilities, then it can go haywire. Megan is a relatable character in terms of defying what her dad tells her, and having to accept the responsibility of her actions. The book shows children the importance of when given responsibility, it is important to listen to others instructions before accepting the responsibility or task at hand. I would recommend this book because it is a creative story that children can relate to, and it teaches the valuable lesson of listening to what your parents say, as well as accepting responsibility for their actions if they do not. The story has a fun plot as children can watch pigs racing around the town, something they would probably not see in real life.

    Personal Response: I enjoyed reading this book. My sister enjoyed when I read it to her. It was a book that she would actually sit down and listen to while I read.

It was a book that she would actually sit down and listen to while I read. There’s not many books that she would be quiet and listen. I believe it was the pictures that made her listen I just enjoyed it because it was an easy read. Plot: During the book Megan never listened to her dad. Her father told her not to lets the pigs out in the beginning. After she was ready for school, she went outside by the pig pen to feed them. She was told to throw it in and not open the gate. Well she opened the gate and all of the pigs ran out into the house. Megan’s father was furious. The pigs ran into the principal’s office at school once Megan got them out of the house. Characterization: In the story Megan, the main character was told by her father not to let the pigs out. She ended up letting the pigs out. She went to the pig fence and looked at the pigs and thought how stupid pigs are. Never did she think if she opened the gate that they would all run out like her father said they would. After they ran out they went straight for the house. Megan’s father was not happy because all of the pigs were on the kitchen table. Her principal was not happy either because they all ran to his office when she went to school. Setting: The story takes place at a farm, also at her school. There was no time but the story took place in modern time. When she got to the school all the pigs were in the principal’s office. After Megan sent the pig’s home they went back into their gate where they belong. They had a choice to go in the gate and also the barn to keep warm. Theme: The overall message of the story that you should listen to your parents the first time. Megan should have listened to her father. If she would have listened none of the trouble she went through would have happened that afternoon. She wasn’t supposed to open the pig’s gate and she did. She found out the hard way that she should have listened the first time her father told her in the beginning of the story. Recommend: I would recommend this book to anybody boy or girl that can read because it’s a cool book. If a high school student has a little brother or sister I would read it to them. Something to read and it’s nice to read a kid book once in a while.

It is now being released in board book form so little hands can experience the happiness of handling and cuddling their own-sized book. The text and illustrations are modified from the original but will not be missed by a brand new gang of potential Munsch lovers. Megan's dad asks her to feed the pigs but to be careful not to open the gate because pigs are smarter than you think. Megan promises she will not allow that to happen and heads off outside to the pigpen. Her observation after leaning over the gate and giving the piggies a going over with her eyeballs concludes that pigs are the dumbed looking animals that she has ever seen. Little by little her nose gets closer to the specimens and the gate creeps open a little more each time she leans in. The pigs watch her, wait patiently and at the precise perfect time they all stampede out of the gate. Oh oh! They make a beeline or should I say piggyline to the house and cause havoc and chaos inside. "Get these pigs out of here! yelled her father. Megan yelled, "HEY YOU DUMB PIGS!" The pigs jumped up-wap, wap, wap! - and ran out the door." Then they zoom off to Megan's school to cause mayhem and disturbances there. When it's time to head for home and the bus pulls up for pick up, guess whose driving the bus? You guessed it...all aboard the piggy bus....and the pigs squeal and chew (the bus seats) and party ..... all the way home. Could Megan restrain herself from ever repeating that faux pas again? You will laugh at loud at the last page where that question just may be answered for you. Oh oh! The illustrations are magnificent! Spot on! Amazing! Colourful, full of expression and emotion, action-packed and cartoonish. There is so much going on in each picture that it is worthwhile visiting the book again and again just to explore the illustrations and appreciate all of Martchenko's work. The teamwork of the best text-writer and the best creative artist makes this book a must have and I am so glad they downsized it so little pint-sized humans can start early on becoming a Robert Munsch/Michael Martchenko fan. Yea and they are both Canadian! Hurray for Canada!

Well Megan went out there and fed the pigs and thought that these pigs were dumb. She underestimated them, and when she yelled "Hey you dumb pigs", they jumped up and ran through the gate and trampled over Megan. Megan had some struggles gathering them all back into the pen, but after an eventful day all the pigs are back in the pen. Characterization: The main character in this book was Megan. She seemed like a fun and curious girl. It did not say how old she was. The other characters in the book was her father, the students, her principal, and the pigs. Her father was a pig farmer. If it wasn't for the pigs there would be no story, they were the whole story. Setting: The setting took place during her school year. It for sure was not winter months, because there was no snow. I was not sure what season it was though. The story took place in present time at Megan's school, house, and her bus. Theme: I thought that one theme for this book would have been to never underestimate anything. You should not judge something by its looks. I believe that Megan learned that after the pigs got out. Another important theme for this book would have been to do what you are told. If Megan would have listened to her father the pigs would have never gotten out. Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone in elementary school. Any gender would love this book. This is a great read and has good pictures.
