Find the Piglet
Our Special Double Issue theme for yesterday and today is 'hide and seek'. Maya and I have been enjoying two new board books with this theme.
The first is Find the Piglet, illustrated by Stephen Cartwright. This is one of those Usborne books that is sort of mass produced (note the absence of an author), but I'm a sucker for those adorable little animals Cartwright draws.
Piglet finds himself everywhere but where he is supposed to be. He's chasing chickens, hiding in the hay, or investigating a pail. My favorite scene is the cows waiting for a drink of water at the trough while Piglet has a little swim. Finally we find that he has found his way to his pen for a well-deserved nap.
