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.
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.

Read information about the authorRobert Munsch was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Fordham University in 1969 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and from Boston University in 1971 with a Master of Arts degree in anthropology.
He studied to become a Jesuit priest, but decided he would rather work with children after jobs at orphanages and daycare centers. In 1973, he received a Master of Education in Child Studies from Tufts University. In 1975 he moved to Canada to work at the preschool at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario. He also taught in the Department of Family Studies at the University of Guelph as a lecturer and as an assistant professor. In Guelph he was encouraged to publish the many stories he made up for the children he worked with.
Munsch's wife delivered two stillborn babies in 1979 and 1980. Out of the tragedy, he produced one of his best-known books, Love You Forever. This book was listed fourth on the 2001 Publishers Weekly All-Time Best selling Children's Books list for paperbacks at 6,970,000 copies (not including the 1,049,000 hardcover copies). The Munsches have since become adoptive parents of Julie, Andrew and Tyya (see them all in Something Good!)
Munsch has obsessive-compulsive disorder and has also suffered from manic depression. In August 2008, Munsch suffered a stroke that affected his ability to speak in normal sentences. He has recovered enough that he is able to perform live, but has put his writing career on hold until he is fully recovered.
