Piggie Pie by Margie Palatini and illustrated by Howard Fine. copy right 1995. Published by Scholastic Inc. pg. 29

Type of Book: Picture book

Summary: Piggie Pie is about a witch named Gritch who was wanting something yummy to eat for lunch. She had already had mouse-tail stew and was wanting something tasty so of course she need to make Piggie Pie. When looking at the ingredients she had it all but not the eight piggies. She looked in the yellow pages for a farm to go take some pigs. She went to old MacDonalds farm and saw a bunch of pigs. But when she got down there she did not see any pigs. She went up to the ducks asking for pigs and the ducks quack-quacked everywhere and no piggies. Gritch went to the cows and after a moo everywhere there were still no piggies. She went to the chickens and after a cluck everywhere there were no piggies. Went on to Old MacDonald himself and demanded pigs but he looked everywhere and there were no pigs. A wolf came up saying he had been chasing 3 little pigs and was starving. Gritch told him that she was an excellent cook and he should come home with her. She loved having wolf for lunch.

Response: This book was very cute. It put the three little pigs in it and old MacDonald had a farm. The wolf and the witch at the end both had plans for one another. The wolf wanted to eat the witch and the witch wanted to eat the wolf. It was all about looking for pigs for piggie pie and the pigs out smarted the witch.

This book is all about a witch who flies to Old McDonalds farm hoping to find some pigs to make piggie poe, but when she arrives she can't find a single pig all around the farm! This book is a great book for questions that keep the readers on track as the pigs hide themselves and dress as other animals. For example, "Why are the pigs hiding?" The illustrations in this book are great and very colorful. The creativity of the pigs is funny and very interesting for the reader especially since the book is told from the villain's point of view. In this case, the villain is a witch who is very funny, but a little bit scary at the same time. ( )

I love this book. It is actually my daughter's favorite book. The book is about a witch who is hungry and wants to make a special recipe (piggie pie). In the book the witch goes to Old McDonald's farm to get the final ingredients (piggies). Once there, the witch is out smarted by the pigs. I would read this book to students around halloween time.

is about a witch who is very hungry and she could not figure out what she wanted to eat! She finally figured it and she was craving piggie pie! She had all her ingredients except for the Pigs! I would use this book to show sequencing of events- beginning-, is she really going to eat the pigs? And it also really good for predictions. ( )
