Oink? - Margie Palatini and Henry Cole

Oink?
Margie Palatini (Author)

Henry Cole (Illustrator)

Scholastic

ISBN 9780545036238

I have never encountered this author or the illustrator previously; it is a pity as we enjoyed this book immensely. This book is witty, fun and really funny. This is the story of Thomas and Joseph, two pigs. The other animals on the farm are not happy with them. They smell, eat swill and stink. The hens, the rabbit and the duck want to help them be happy. But things are not always as they appear. The story is great fun and the illustrations are full of small details children pick out.

We love this book. Margie Palatini and Henry Cole came to Norfolk Academy when I worked there. I purchased Oink? for my son...it is also great that Thomas and Joseph (the bigs in the book) are my husbands first and middle name!
