About the Book

Poor Pig! He just wants to take a nap, but his barnyard pals are making a terrible racket. Cow gabs on his cell phone, Cat pops balloons, and Hen saws. Pig hatches a plan to block all the noise. In a surprise ending, Pigs learns that his friends have been planning a birthday party just for him. So much for napping!

Hilarious illustrations, a fun story line, and decodable text make for a real treat for new readers.

Ethan Long is a renowned illustrator and animator. He is the creator of Tasty Time with Ze Fronk, a TV show that airs on Disney Playhouse. Ethan grew up in Central Pennsylvania and now lives in Orlando, Florida.
