Iggy Pig is going to the seaside. He can't wait to feel the sand between his toes. But where is that big grey animal with the long bushy tail and the hungry smile off to? Iggy Pig had better watch out.
'These delightful tales about a young pig and his farmyard friends contain ample repetition within robustly patterned texts which, along with matching illustrations, prove very accessible to novice readers. Additionally, the allusion to what big grey animals tend to do to little pigs makes for compulsive stories which, in Margaret Meek's words, 'mean more than they say'. This is the way to learn to read - more please. * The School Librarian, July 1999 *
