Poor pig number one may never get to sleep! In this swine-stuffed count-along bedtime book, one ham-bunctious pig after another comes crowding into her bedroom -- each with its own special way to keep the poor little pig awake. Pig number two turns on the light. Pig number three likes to watch TV all night. Four's a juggling boar -- and there are still six more! With new hogs arriving by the minute, pig number one's bedroom is wall-to-wall pig-demonium. Will this weary little pig ever hear the Bard's immortal words: "Goodnight, sweet pig"? Here is a counting book that uses irresistible rhymes to send children off to sleep, night after night. Ages 2-5 AUTHOR: Linda Bailey is the author of over 18 books for children, including the Stevie Diamond Mysteries series, the Good Times Travel Agency series and Stanley's Party. She is the winner of numerous awards, including the Silver Birch Award, the Red Cedar Award, the Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award, the B.C. Book Prize and the Arthur Ellis Award from the Crime Writers of Canada. Born in Winnipeg, she traveled around the world in her 20s and then moved to Vancouver, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Education at the University of British Columbia. She has two grown daughters, a golden retriever and a cat. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. Josee Masse grew up in Montreal, where she painted with her father in his studio as long ago as she can remember. After college, she worked as a graphic designer for a few years, before deciding to become a full-time illustrator. Josee now lives near Montreal in the country with her partner and their daughter.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bailey (Stanley's Wild Ride) introduces a piglet named Hamlette (aka pig number one), who actually wants to go to bed. But one by one, her nine fellow pigs burst into her bedroom with much different agendas. Pig number two wants to "read with a light,/ and eat buttered toast all through the night," while the last arrival, pig number 10, is "a famous basketball star/ who brought his whole team in a luxury car!" When Hamlette finally reaches the end of her rope ("How can a poor pig girl get some sleep?"), the perpetrators sheepishly depart in countdown form; those last to leave even make amends with a bedtime story (pig number five), "a tender kiss goodnight" (pig number 4) and other goodhearted ministrations. Masse (Three Cat and Mouse Tales) packs the subtly grained acrylic paintings with mayhem and pratfalls, including a bride-pig falling into a cake. But the elegant palette and crisp, editorial-style characterizations seem ill-matched to the comically chaotic proceedings. Ages 2-5. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
