Time after time, Preston the pig unknowingly outwits a hungry wolf that is trying to catch and eat him

Publishers Description
A large, toothy, mean-looking wolf zealously stalks Preston the pig. But each time the wolf gets close, Preston suddenly changes course and unknowingly eludes his pursuer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Suddenly!: A Preston Pig Story?

great for rainy days  Feb 25, 2006
My kids absolutely love Preston pig. The story is cute and the pictures keep even the most wiggly toddler busy.
Lots of Fun  Mar 1, 2001
This imaginative book tells of an innocent little pig followed around the neighborhood by a hungry and scheming wolf. Each page shows Preston walking around the neighborhood seemingly in imminent danger (connoted by the words "when suddenly!" with "suddenly" in big bold type). As noted above, this is almost the pig and wolf equivalent of the Road Runner and Wiley Coyote (except the pig never plots against the wolf), and there are similarly benign results for the pig and violent injury to the wolf. The "violence" is cartoonish, but it's there (wolf is run over by his own steam roller, Billy the Bully gets bitten instead of our hero, Preston, the wolf crashes to the floor, and heavily bandaged wolf heads off to "wolf hospital): You may or may not believe such material is appropriate for your child. We thought it was alright, and the "Suddenly!" hook is a lot of fun (especially for you dramatic readers out there). Big, colorful, sometimes "Mad Magazine" style pictures in its 26 pages. This would also be a very good book for the beginning reader
cute little story...but...?  Mar 10, 2000
I got this book in hopes it would be a helpful tool in learning Vietnamese. The text is simple enough, but my Vietnamese friend kept giving me alternative translations because she was skeptical that it was the best translation into that language. Not that I personally could judge... However, I am looking for more of these parallel texts between Vietnamese and English and wish there were more...
good fun  Sep 25, 1999
easy reading level , but enough twists in the good humored plot to keep it interesting. If you like this, check our "the Trouble with Boys"
Suddenly! is an absolute delight.  Oct 7, 1998
Colin McNaughton's book, Suddenly! is an absolute delight from start to finish. The illustrations are precious, especially the ever present smile on Preston's face and the look of chagrin on the wolf's face. I liked the book because of its predictibility. Young children love that repetition. My five year old and eight year old were very happy to exclaim, "Suddenly!" and "Silly me!" after just one reading. I can't wait to read some of McNaughton's other Preston books.
