" Just as great as Little Pea and Little Hoot. Poor little Oink always has to mess things up and all he wants to do is clean like his friends. This is a book for anyone like my sister who really enjoys cleaning and may feel forced to mess up some. Great read for the kid who does not want to clean. Ages 3+ " Molly said.
" I love these books! OK, some crazy people may think there is some subversive message that kids must conform to parents arbitrary standards. But I think it's a harmless, fun little book about a tidy pig in a messy pig world. Kids love it because they can't believe pig wants to be so tidy and his parents want him to be messy! Just fun. Lighten up people! " Crystal said.
" Little Oink is a neat little pig. He enjoys his days at school and digging for truffles with his friends. But he doesn't enjoy doing his piggy chores. He HATES making a mess! But that's what pigs do: they make a mess.To be able to go play his favorite game, clean up, he must take all of the toys out of the toy bin, put on dirty clothes and unmake his bed. " Melanie said.
" From the creators of Little Pea and Little Hoot comes a story about a pig who wants to be clean. This is a cute addition to the Rosenthal and Corace's brand of creatures wanting to doing the opposite of what they are known for, and it's again fun as a parent to read how Little Oink disagrees with his parents. " Libby said.
" In the same vein as Little Pea or Little Hoot only this time the culprit is a fastidiously neat piglet who has to learn to make his bedroom an absolute mess. " Lissie said.
" Little Oink enjoys many things about his life. He digs playing, savors schools, and relishes nighttime with his family but he does not like the one thing that is valued by his family: making a mess. How will Little Oink cope with his opposing feelings?I enjoyed this book as a parent who has a child that despises cleaning his room. I loved the illustrations and the style of the font. " Randie D. Camp, M.S. said.
" The same as Little Hoot, only with pigs instead of owls, and cleanliness instead of bedtime. The art is just as cute, but Little Hoot seemed a little...healthier to me. Something about the little pig being forced to be dirty seemed crueler to me than a little owl forced to say up late. But then, I'm sensitive. " Caleb said.
" This is a super adorable book that takes a totally recognizable situation--parents making their son clean up his room--and turns it on its head. Kids will giggle as clean-loving Little Oink is forced to mess up his room. (Look for this author's other books where animal parents make their kids eat candy and stay up late.) Another funny alternate-universe story with fantastic pictures. " Destinee Sutton said.
