When I asked Pierre to choose the next book that he'd like me to read from the new pile of picture books that we'd received to review, he came back with this one : You're A Rude Pig, Bertie ! by Claudia Boldt. This is from the same author who wrote Odd Dog - click through to read our review of that book.
It tells the tale of Bertie, a very insensitive piggy, who upsets all his friends and acquaintances by making hurtful comments to them, so nobody wants to be his friend or go to his party. Then he falls in love with Ruby, the cute bunny at the cheese shop, and realises how upset she gets when another customer is rude to her. This allows him to see the error of his ways and turn into a much nicer pig.
The simple pictures are full of little details which are great for looking at as we read the story together.
It's a cute story and has a lovely life lesson in there for children to pick up on too.
