Foxy and Piggy love to read. They share their reading adventures with each other, and describe all the wonderful characters they have met. They encounter mermaids and dragons. They fly on a magic carpet, and find buried treasure. Foxy goes to outer space on a rocket, and Piggy has tea with Alice and the Mad Hatter in Wonderland. The two friends decide to start a book club, so that they can go on even more reading adventures together!

I loved the sweet characters of Piggy and Foxy. They are so cute!! They bounce from story to story enjoying each adventure and happy to share the experience of reading with a friend.
I loved the various art styles in this book; each style is perfect for the story it illustrates. The colors are bright and eye-catching.

The writing is really well done. Rhyming narrative in picture books can be really overdone sometimes, but this writing fits perfectly with the storytelling and the characters. The rhymes are good, and pleasant to read aloud.

I think this book would really encourage children to read more, and especially to find the stories mentioned in this book like Peter Pan and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. This is the perfect book to inspire a child to read!

  1. Sounds like a fun book and I love the illustrations. Yes rhyming is hard to pull off but it’s fun. One word Dr. Suess. Two.
