Hungry Pig

Russell Julian, Illustrator, Catherine Shoolbred, Text by (Art/Photo Books), Tiffany Leeson, Text by (Art/Photo Books) Egmont Books (UK) $9.99 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4052-1032-4
Barnyard animals gallivant from page to page in a quartet of original titles in the Farm Sound Board Books series by Russell Julian, each with an appropriate sound chip. A brightly plumed rooster proudly proclaims his parenthood in Happy Cockerel, while a baby calf stays just out of sight of his worried mother in Lost Calf. Youngsters watch a small porker search for the perfect meal in Hungry Pig and discover how man's best friend keeps the sheep in line in Busy Dog. Julian's humorous depiction of the barnyard denizens playfully exaggerates a porcine snout or the prideful posture of a papa rooster. .
