Baby Pig Pig Talks

Written & Illustrated by: David McPhail

David McPhail imagines his classic character, Pig Pig, as a baby just learning to talk.

In Baby Pig Pig Talks, Baby Pig Pig is delighted to imitate the sounds he hears—a cat’s meow comes out as “Duba;” a snake's hiss becomes “Hissa;” a duck’s quack becomes “Quacka.” The more he hears the closer he gets to making the right sound himself. But when a friendly dog shows his affection, Baby Pig Pig speaks his first real word—"Mama!”

The simple, satisfying story arc is great for reading aloud. Little ones can follow along with the illustrations as the story builds with the excitement as Baby Pig Pig's garbles become actual words.

McPhail's charming and delightful illustrations perfectly showcase the humorous adventures that all babies and parents experience, making this adorable board book a must for baby showers and new baby gifts.

Publishers Weekly, starred review

McPhail’s picture book hero Pig Pig is back—as a baby. As his mother pushes him around in his stroller, she introduces words for things they see. When she singles out a cat, “Duba” is Baby Pig Pig’s response. “Snake,” she says, pointing at one (from atop a park bench). “Hissa,” Baby Pig Pig replies. The arrival of an affectionate dog finally prompts Baby Pig Pig to say his first “real” word, “Mama.” McPhail’s watercolors exude warmth and quiet humor, and the aural sources for many of Baby Pig Pig’s words (“Dinga” for tricycle, “Quacka” for duck) hint at how the gears are turning in his young porcine brain.

Booklist

McPhail’s popular character Pig Pig appears here as a toddler, just learning his baby skills. In this board-book edition, Mama is trying to get Pig Pig to talk. She says “Mama,” and he says “bluba.” As she pushes his stroller through the park, he seems to be getting the idea. Mama’s “duck” leads to his “quacka.” But it’s not until a dog comes out of nowhere to offer a lick, that his first real word comes out, a startled “Mama!” The last spread shows baby and mama having a moment, while ducks quack, dogs woof, and taxis honk in the background. The audience probably won’t know the original books, but this one and its companion, Baby Pig Pig Walks, are pleasers with their simple text and amusing, warm ink-and-watercolor illustrations.
