Piggity-Wiggity Jiggity Jig Goes to Dad's Cafe product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsPiggity-Wiggity Jiggity Jig was a smart sort of name for a small sort of pig.

Piggity-Wiggity has been feeling a bit poorly, so Mum has a special treat in store for him... a trip to Dad's Cafe for lunch!

But Piggity-Wiggity doesn't recognise all those fancy foods on the menu... whatever will he eat?

I first thought this book would be too old for my 4 year old daughter but when it arrived she was so excited to see a new book that I figured I would give it a go.
The pictures are great. They're not just your typical drawings or photos and I think that makes it more fun for everyone, definitely not just the children and the verse just seems to flow.
Perhaps some of the words went over my daughters head and she was a bit young to explain every word to her but there was enough there in verse and picture to keep her amused, in fact it became her favourite book for a few months there.

I'm not sure what the age recommendation for this would be but I would hazard a guess at about age 5-6 but to be read with a parent.

I myself was really drawn to this book. The illustrations are so neat and you dont want to turn the page too quickly because there is so much in the picture to look at. My children were also drawn to the illustrations and together we noticed clever details like the bus is called 'swine line' the restaurant 'the ravenous snout'. Philip Webb is truely talented.
The writing was interesting to say the least. It was certainly cleverly written with great rhyming but the first time my children read it it was a bit of an effort to figure some of it out. We had to go slow and I had to explain quite a few big words. But I dont see a problem with that, it got them thinking for sure.
I would definately like to own any more of these Piggity books that are written in the future. I think they will stand the test of time and be a book that is still appealling to read to the grandchildren in the distant future.

This is a really fun book - so long as you like stories that rhyme.

I enjoyed reading it so much that I find myself picking it up as a first choice to read above many others. A little snippet for you that I enjoyed is "the level of chit-chatting suddenly dropped and the sound of the cutlery stoppity-stopped"

The illustrations are very quirky. They are all drawn with a sense of uniqueness - no two pigs look the same. There are all sorts of pigs at "Dad's Cafe", from business-suited pigs to lawyers, and even politician pigs.

I love the newspaper mast "Morning Porker", with the sub headlines "Three little pigs homeless" and "Big business at bottom of trough".

I have never read a book quite as clever as this one. Not only is it funny for kids but it also has an angle for the parents to have a laugh at too. There are a few big words in the story though so be prepared to explain what the meaning of ravenous, resplendant and auspicious are to your children when they ask!
