King Pig is a combination of entertaining text, amusing illustrations and a gentle reminder for readers that it is important to be kind.
Nick Bland’s illustrations will appeal to children and adults. I love the expressions on the faces of the sheep as they undertake the tasks the King gives them or, if possible, simply ignore his blustering and bossiness.
King Pig is another wonderful story from favourite author/illustrator Nick Bland. His gentle message for readers will be so much more effective and meaningful because he presents it in such an entertaining and humorous way.
