Reviews - What do customers think about Pigs (Classic Munsch)?
Horrible book... just plain bad Jan 25, 2009
Wow.. I think every well known personality eventually gets book published, or movie made, or TV show done that they manage to do just on their star power, but turns out they laid a big fat egg. This must be Robert Munsch's.
The book is just bad... bad, bad, bad. Even if I didn't find the constant use of the word dumb gratuitous and inappropriate in a children's book (which I do) or dislike the fact that all the adults yell at the girl (which I do), the story is just unimaginative and repetative. It's like something my daughter would have come up with doing pretend play with a toy pig when she was 4 (at 6, she's way beyond this level).
I can't believe anyone even published this. Wow.
A fun book Dec 15, 2008
This is a fun book to read to a child or to read to yourself,great pictures and a great story.There are still some good childres books out there
funny, irreverent story Jan 4, 2006
Yes, everyone does dumb things. It seems that underestimating pigs is a dumb thing to do. Megan, unfortunately, has to learn the hard way. As someone who did work with pigs as a kid, when I read this I thought it was great. It's not terribly educational, or inspiring, or anything like that. But gosh, it's entertaining. The pictures of the pigs are really funny, of course. I recommend _Pigs_ for the same kids who liked _Eloise_.
Not his best Jul 8, 2002
My 3 1/2 year old daughter is a huge Munch fan and likes this one well enough, but it's my least favourite. She tends to memorize books and quote them constantly, and I'm not thrilled with the "hey, you dumb...." mantra. This is kind of minor, but how was it that the pigs showed up at school after Megan locked them back in at home? If you're wanting to add to your Munch collection, he's written better. Alligator Baby and Thomas's Snowsuit are fun without the insults and a little more logically consistent.
Pigs-Desription May 14, 2002
Pigs was an exciting and interesting book to do an author study on. My friends and I had a very fun experience acting this book out for a play. We got to show everyone the exciteness of this book. I know Robert Munsch had a very exciting experience writing this book. I recommend for kids to read this book, because not only is it a book for fun but it also teaches a moral. The moral is that you should listen to your elders. This book is better than other books because it is exciting and thrilling. I would rate this book 5 stars!!!
