From New York Times bestselling illustrator Christine Davenier and bestselling author Amy E. Sklansky comes this utterly charming, silly, and irresistible read-aloud that sends the little piggies from everyone's favorite nursery rhyme off to the beach.
Following the rhythm and rhyme scheme of the original (This little piggy went to market..), young children get to follow along as the five piggies pack the car, arrive at the beach, build a sand castle, swim and explore, and play with a beach ball.
It's the perfect read-aloud for young children and their adults, providing lots to look at, loads of fun action, and a perfect ending to a perfect day at the beach.
"Together, Sklansky and Davenier have created a charming adaptation of a classic rhyme that will make readers want to wiggle their toes all the way to the beach...An excellent seasonal retelling of "This Little Piggy." --School Library Journal
