Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud is a fantasy book that follows a family attempting to go somewhere. First there were pigs in the run and the Brother got out of the car to shoo them, but he couldn't! The hens were followed by Sister, the sheep by Mama, and the bulls by Papa. Even with all their combined effort, none of the animals would budge! That is until Grandma got out of the car... With a fierce snarl and hands on her hips, she yelled out "TIME FOR SUP!" at which point all the animals booked it back to the barn to eat their dinner. During the process, Grandma got trampled in the mud! The family climbed back into the car and Grandma told them it was "time to go!" ( )

Funny book with great repetition and word play. Good for pattern or formula books. Nonsense words and sound words are prevalent. ( )

This book is about all different types of farm animals getting in the mud, and cars were not able to pass by. A family all tries to get the animals to move, but no one has any luck until the grandma yelled and every animal ran away. The author's website is http://www.lynnplourde.com/. It is great because it has a page for children's books along with items that teachers can do for lessons using her books.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0892727195, Hardcover)

It's mud season, but there's more than mud in the middle of the road: There are pigs, hens, sheep, and bulls in the way. That won't do. For a car to get through, somebody's gotta shoo! But who? Plourde's trademark style blends alliteration and rhyme into an elegantly simple mix that children-and adults-enjoy reading aloud.
