Children's Book Review: King Pig.

King Pig is the story of a not so nice king who doesn't understand why his royal subjects don't like him!
He quite literally walks all over his sheep, and tries to get their attention by dropping eggs on them from the top of his castle! Finally, he decides that the reason he can't make them like him must be because his clothes aren't fancy enough!

This funny tale of a pig who has a big lesson to learn, is the latest title out from Nick Bland, one of Australia's best selling authors and illustrators. His hugely popular picture books include such titles as The Very Cranky Bear and Twinkle. Last year, his book The Runaway Hug (illustrated by Freya Blackwood) was named the winner of the CBCA Book of the Year, Early Childhood, and in 2010 The Wrong Book was shortlisted for the same category.

A hard cover which is once again beautifully illustrated, King Pig teaches children the importance of being nice.
