    1. To see this review as well as this week's favorite children's books please visit readrantrockandrollPig the Pug is a children's book about a pug named Pig. Pig is very selfish and wants to keep all of his stuff to himself. He just won't share with his house friend, Trevor. Trevor's really nice to him and just wants to play with him, but Pig won't yield. Follow along in the story to see if Pig can learn to finally share.What makes this book so good is the illustrations of Pig. You get an idea by [...]




    2. A sweet story about sharing - it's more fun to share and be with our friends, than to pile them up all for ourselves, to 'have' not to 'use'. Silly little pug stockpiled his goodies, and even tumbled over and hurt himself. His friend convinced him to share and have fun! Indy thought this was cute.


    3. I'm not the biggest fan of rhyming picture books, I know, BLASPHEMY! However, the illustrations in this book completely won me over. Now, I've run into other books by Aaron Blabey, "The Bad Guys" was a SSYRA* selection this year. The library system I work in ordered it because of that and I got my first exposure to his books. (*Sunshine State Young Readers Award, for the curious)Apparently, Aaron Blabey enjoys more popularity in Australia, but, I think we're slowly catching up here in the US. My [...]


    4. I'm a sucker for dog anything - and a picture book with fantastic illustrations is a pretty sure bet! This one is hilarious to just look through. Pig is a pretty rough character - he's a pug who happens to be greedy and selfish. He's not someone you want to model your character after. I feel the story gets this across. It does promote some good things while also making one laugh from just looking at the illustrations of Pig the Pug!


    5. This is my new favourite picture book.The illustrations were hilarious - you should feel bad if you didn't laugh!This brought out the inner 5 year old inside me.


    6. As a reader, I loved this book. Personally, I'm a dog person so naturally I was drawn to it. Once I read the book, I knew I had to purchase it. The illustrations are hilarious and very detailed. It is a very simple read and had a rhyme scheme. The point of the book is to teach sharing to the readers. I thought the author did a great job teaching readers how to share in a humorous way. This is a great book for young kids. It would even be good for children that are getting a new sibling who aren' [...]


    7. First sentence: Pig was a pug and I'm sorry to say, he was greedy and selfish in most every way.Premise/plot: Pig is a selfish, greedy dog who often gets REALLY, REALLY, REALLY upset with the other dog of the house, Trevor. Trevor seems to be a happy-get-along-with-everybody dog. Essentially, Trevor and Pig are complete opposites. One day his selfishness leads him into big trouble.My thoughts: I didn't like this one very much. The rhyming worked for me for the most part. But the story itself was [...]


    8. Read to Trevor since he brought me the title to read to him. Pig the pug doesn't want to share any of his toys but Trevor the wiener dog wants to play with him. Pig doesn't agree and piles all his toys up into a mountain and climbs it only to have it collapse and he rolls out the window. Poor Pig is not encased in a cast so he has to share his toys with Trevor. Cute book and a good one to help children realize that sharing is nice.


    9. Okay, I'm not counting this toward my reading challenge but I had to review it because this may be the funniest picture book I've ever seen. My friend and I were actually doubled over laughing while reading this in Barnes and Noble. The illustrations. The plot twist. The emotional rollercoaster. All perfect and hilarious.


    10. So, so funny! This might just be my new favorite kid's book! I picked this up at the library because I absolutely love Pugs and my son is a dog lover. GREAT choice!Pig is a rude pug who doesn't want to share his toys with another dog. The whole story has a wonderful rhyming scheme and the illustrations are playful and silly. I love Pig's attitude, facial expressions, and dialogue, and the lesson he eventually learns about sharing with friends.The first time we read it, I was laughing out loud, a [...]




    11. I loved this book! The illustrations were fabulous and the story line is one kids can related to. This is a great mentor text to discuss selfishness.


    12. My review might be a little biased based on the fact that I am a HUGE Pug lover (right behind Bulldogs). This story was just the cutest and my students thought it was hilarious as well :)




    13. This book was so super funny and amazing!! The book is about two dogs, one of the dogs names was Trevor and he wants Pig to share his toys but Pig refuses to share. I will let you figure out the rest of the story when you get this amazing book!!!



    14. This book is a favorite at our house, my granddaughter loves the story and quickly learned several phrases that she says as she turns the pages. The illustrations are hilarious and it's fun to read, definitely a must have for kids!


    15. Hahaha, love Pig the Pug!Pig the Pug is selfish and unkind but he learns to be unselfish and kind when circumstances become beyond his control. So funny!


    16. Uhhh this book was amazing so everyone needs to read it. About a pug who needs to learn how to get his share on. The pictures are greaat. Read with PreK and Grade 1.


    17. This one is a nope for me. There are no redeeming qualities for Pig. He never appears to feel regret for acting in such a selfish manner and so no lesson is learned. Kind of a let down after a promising start.


    18. ''Pig was a Pug and I'm sorry to say,he was greedy and selfish in most every way.''I'm a sucker for a good dog story, particularly a hilarious one like Pig the Pug by award-winning author / illustrator, Aaron Blabey. With a front cover that creates a lasting impression; a bulgy eyed, flat nosed pug that is so ugly that it's really quite adorable, you just can't resist!In true toddler tantrum-style behaviour, Pig the Pug blatantly refuses to share his food and toys with friendly sausage dog, Trev [...]


    19. My first read out aloud in the library book. I read this for year 2 students as part of their library visit of community workers. I wore my multi focal glasses and found the words blurring. I read after the library officer and was applauded and given a huge hug by one boy as he liked my reading. The story lends itself to voices and is a story about sharing and friendships. Has great illustrations and is a book that can be read to children up to grade 4.


    20. Another excellent picture book from Aaron Blabey with his signature wit, verse and quirky illustrations that totally capture the character of pugs and daschunds. I highly recommend this funny book for storytimes whether with just your child or in a library/classroom environment.


    21. Such a cute little book about a pug, named pig, who loves his things so much that he doesn't want to share. A great book that will teach kids it's good to share. I love the illustrations. Pig the pug is just too funny and adorable.


    22. God I loved this. Hilarious cautionary tale on the dire consequences of not sharing. And it features a dog called Trevor! (My brother had a dog called Trevor - so how could I resist?) Shortlisted for 2015 CBCA Picture Book of the Year and deservedly so. The littlies are going to adore it.


    23. Fun illustrations, but what is going on with that message? Share and be nice or you'll break every bone in your body? That's kind of messed up. I'm all for consequences for your actions but perhaps not in such a blunt way.
