" 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. " said.

" A sweet story about a little pig that likes things nice and neat. I love Jen Corace's style and especially liked Little Oink's charming nose. This would make a nice pairing with Mo Willems' Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed. Recommended for preschool - grade 1. " said.

" If you remember (and loved) Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, you will love this sweet story of a little pig who just wants to clean up. However, his parents won't let him play until he's made his room into a proper pigsty and changed into his deity clothes. As with Little Owl, there is a lot of word play and opportunities abound for writing lessons bye example. Kids will love the irony-and probably wish their parents wanted them to be messy too. " said.

" Little Oink loves to be clean and tidy, but his parents say he must grow into a respectable, messy grown-pig. Gives fantastic vocabulary in the beginning (relish, dug, savor- for like!), but the end, to me, left something to be desired.However, I would definitely read this in a storytime because I think the kids would love that Little Oink's parents make him mess up his room instead of cleaning it! " said.

" This is a funny book, a study in opposites from what human parents expect their children to do to pick up and stay neat. It's similar to the book, "Little Hoot," by the same author/illustrator team and is ironic, but in a fun way. Our girls enjoyed watching this book read aloud on the "Tumblebooks" online audiobook site (tumblebooks.com) We've also borrowed it from our local library a couple of times. " said.

"Little Oink likes a clean room, and according to his parents, that's a problem!


Cute story about a pig whose forced to mess up his clean room. Target age is around preschool/kindergarten and I'm not sure if they'll get the joke. That, plus Rosenthal using "truffles" "relished" and other words they won't know (yes, yes, they need knew vocab. Truffles? Not so much) make me suspect parents will have more fun with this than kids.


No ill will, I want to read her other books. The illustrators are fun as was the line "'Fine' whined the swine."


" said.

"Little Oink is a happy li'l piggie, and he's very good, but there's one thing he has trouble with: keeping his room messy. He's always trying to tidy up and put things away, despite his parents' efforts to keep his room an appropriate sty.

This was another great book from AKR, this time tackling that old toddler favorite, cleaning up after yourself. I think of the three this one didn't quite get to the point behind the reverse psychology, but it was still fun and the illustrations are always pretty amazing. The Boy (2.75) really loves these books, and we never get tired of them either.
" said.

" This one is a hit in our house because my son regularly says now, "I wish I was a pig," when being told to clean something up in reference to this book. I love how Amy Krouse Rosenthal's mind works: Little Oink has a hard time being a good little pig because he likes to be NEAT, Little Pea gets scolded for not eating his CANDY at dinner, and Little Hoot has to be begged to stay up LATE. I love an author that makes a kid go "What?!?" " said.
