What's Piggie Pie! About

Publisher Summary

Gritch the Witch is grouchy, grumpy, and very hungry. The only thing that could make her happy is something extra special for lunch, and that is: Piggie Pie! Gritch zooms off on her broomstick to find eight plump piggies — where else? — on Old MacDonald’s Farm. Cleverly disguised pigs impersonate ducks, chickens, a cow, and Old MacDonald himself, as this uproarious, quick-paced story builds to an ironically surprising conclusion. Wacky, hip, and illustrated with bold, bright paintings, “Piggie Pie” adds a new twist to an old fairy-tale scene.

The Goodfather's Rating

This is an incredibly clever and funny book. The ending will have you laughing out loud as two infamous fairytale characters—a witch and a wolf—meet their match at Old MacDonald’s Farm. Gritch the Witch’s discovering Old MacDonald’s farm through the yellow pages (“Call EI-EI-O”) is a funny inclusion that serves as a first indication that this witch story that initially appears fairly traditional is actually a unique, memorable fractured fairytale.
