Review: Pork Chop by David Edminister

Porter P. Psnout's favorite book was "The Three Little Pigs." Unfortunately, he had frequent nightmares about the Big, Bad Wolf trying to "huff, puff, (and bluff)" his way into our hefty hero's house for a little midnight "snack." In his disgustingly disturbing dreams, he hid and cowered in the face of adversity. One fateful night, Porter awoke startled, and nearly frozen with fear, made himself a solemn oath to get into shape, enroll in Master Tusk's Martial Arts Academy and to stop being a "chicken" once and for all! Did he finally succeed or succumb when he finally fully faced his fears?

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets three stars. This children's book was a cute, oversized but still slim, paperback with nice, colorful illustrations. I loved that the story of The Three Little Pigs gave the main character (a pig) nightmares! It was such a nice detail. While the alliterations could be a bit annoying at times they weren't overwhelming. Overall this was a nice little story with a valuable message that should make for good reading for children of both sexes.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
