Pig is a dog. Not a pig. If he was a pig, he would be named Dog.

This pug is the perfect character to teach youngsters the ugliness of greed and self-centeredness. Besides the great illustrations, the author tells the short tale in rhyming prose, a delight to young and old.

Winning isn't so sweet when Pig the Pug looses control and gets greedy.

Pig the Pug lives a blessed life with all of the best toys, but he doesn't want to share them with anyone until an accident forces him to spend time with others.

A great social story for the importance of sharing and friendship - it's hard to get mad at Pig the Pug and the ending will be sure to put a smile on everyone's face and get everyone in the sharing spirit.

Anyone who lives with a pug, or loves pugs, will closely identify with the oddities exhibited by Pig the pug. Also a great book for anyone struggling with being a poor loser/winner.

A great book about sharing. You don't have to have a pug to enjoy Blabey's spot-on illustrations but if you do, you will surely recognize your pug in these pages!

Another awesome book about Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey! I just love Blabey's books - truly a skilled artist and story writer!

Aaron Blabey is my favourite new children's books writer! While many of his books are not available in Canada (he's an Australian writer), the one's that *are* here are truly fantastic.

I read this one frequently at Family Storytime! Pig the Pug is my all-time favourite. It's a fun book about sharing that will bring laughter to kids and adults. Hilarious illustrations, great rhyming text, and a good message.
