Summary
Despite their differences, Big Pig and Little Pig are great friends.When they get together, these piggy pals have nothing but fun--and so does the reader. This is a short, simple story, fully illustrated, with familiar objects and situations, repetition, rhyme, and strong links between art and text. The big pig and the little pig are hot--the sun is shining and they want to cool off. They each decide to make a hole to fill with water. Part of the humor in this story comes from the way they go about their respective tasks. Big Pig uses a little shovel to dig his hole while Little Pig has a mechanical digger. The end result seems to suit each as one sits with his big fanny in what looks like a puddle, while the other cavorts in his large swimming hole. AUTHOR DAVID McPHAIL is the creator of dozens of wonderful books, including Big Brown Bear's Up and Down Day; Sisters; Mole Music, a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year; and several recent Green Light Readers for Harcourt.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. K^-1. In this Green Light Reader, Big Pig and Little Pig are hot. They each decide to make a pool--but in a different way. When Big Pig grabs for a shovel, Little Pig goes for an earthmover. So it goes, with one pig doing the job manually, the other mechanically. New readers will like the dichotomy, but most of the book's charm resides in the pigs. As McPhail reveals in a note, he loves to draws pigs, and it shows. Pretty simple; pretty cute. --Ilene Cooper"
