THE PIG WHO RAN A RED LIGHT by Paul Brett Johnson

THE PIG WHO RAN A RED LIGHT

Age Range: 4 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

Poor Miss Rosemary. Inspired by the example of Gertrude, The Cow Who Wouldn’t Come Down (1993), George the pig is trying to fly, play music, and drive. The results are uniformly disastrous: “It’s a known fact pigs don’t drive,” scolds Miss Rosemary after the inevitable crash. The animals are as expressive as the people in Johnson’s tidy, clean-lined country scenes; George’s cheery confidence comes through as clearly as the local sheriff’s irritation does. At last Miss Rosemary and Gertrude put their heads together, drawing up a successful scheme to get George to behave like a perfect pig—just as Magnolia the goose decides to burst into oinks. (Picture book. 4-7)
