Pigs in Pajamas

Penelope Pig has been planning a party, a sleepover party for Saturday night. All around town pigs are putting on pj’s. They’re packing and snapping and zipping up tight!

Come celebrate the letter P with Penelope and her pals in this bouncy rhyming story where the presents, the snacks, and even the party games all begin with P!


Join the gang for pigging out, Pass the Potato, and a piggy pile!
With more than 75 things that start with P to find in the cheerful acrylic & photo collage illustrations, it’s a perfect opportunity for parents & piggies to pour over the pictures together.

From Kirkus Reviews:
“Smith’s paean to the 16th letter of the alphabet is a pleasing porcine romp... the illustrations, are packed with P’s... which are listed on the last page (in order of appearance); perfect for turning subsequent readings into seek-and-find games, Even the piggy proclamations appearing in the illustrations are replete with P’s.”

From Maggie Smith:
When I noticed how many fun things and activities start with P (especially Pigs!), I had to make a book about it. Besides the mischief that the porcine pals get up to, I had great fun coming up with all the P-things to include in the pictures. I hope kids will enjoy finding them and will love the letter P (and by extension, all letters) as much as I do, after reading this book!
