Getting onto the wrong school bus was the pig's first mistake. Her second was choosing to take the path through the forest. The next thing she knows, a wolf has grabbed her and thrown her into a sack, all the while singing a song about soup. Lucky for the pig, she's smart and can read. She stalls for all the time she can, but pretty soon she realizes she'll have to use the dreaded Hog-Eye stare: Hog-eye! Hog-eye! Magic stare! Make him itchy everywhere. On his nose and in his hair. Even in his underwear!

This book has to be one of the funniest children's books we have ever read. We originally checked it out from the library and loved it so much we had to buy our own copy. It provides tons of giggles. It is perfect for our 5 year old's silly sense of humor.
Wonderfully funny and imaginative. Feb 27, 2001
Hog-Eye is one of my children's (6 and 8) all-time favorite books. (It's one of my favorites as well!) The little pig's creative explanation of how she missed the bus is humorous, but her family's sideline responses to the story are what make this book really wonderful. Hog-Eye demonstrates just how important a little ingenuity and the ability to read can be.
One of my daughter's favorite books ever... May 18, 2000
My six year old daughter and I have read this book over thirty times, and we're still laughing! A little pig, trying to explain why she missed school, invents a tall tale about a hungry wolf, a soup recipe, and her own ingenious efforts to escape the wolf's clutches. Don't miss this book!
Excellent read aloud Jun 7, 1998
Hog-eye is one of those books that elementary librarians like myself search for. It is a wonderful excellent read aloud that the children enjoy especially the "underwear" part. It is also a wonderful book about the importance of reading without hitting the children over the head. Also I could really get into reading aloud this book. It was such a fun experience for students and I. Thank you Susan Meddaugh.
Innovative children's book with funny dual story line. Jan 25, 1997
If you're looking for a children's book that reflects the attitude of today's kids, read Hog Eye. With an unique dual storyline, the main character is telling about her adventure and dubiously clever escape, and her large family is reacting and commenting. You enjoy a delightful blend of interactions.
And when you get the the punchline of the story, your kids will remember it FOREVER.
A real keeper. A regular read for our three kids
