    I really enjoyed reading 20 Hungry Piggies. I thought it was a fun, enjoyable book that also taught counting. I thought it was interesting that it played on the five little piggies. The illustrations are beautiful. I thought it was clever of the illustrator Andrew N. Harris to hide numbers on the pages. It turns the book into a fun hide and seek game. I had a unique and wonderful opportunity of being taught by the author Trudy Harris this semester at BYU-Idaho. She taught Children's Literature, and her son came and taught one day. We got to talk with him about being an illustrator and he told us about this book. I think this is a book that an child who is learning to count should have. It would make it fun and enjoyable.

    Jill really enjoyed this book. She liked looking for the numbers on each page (they were incorporated in the pigs' clothing in different ways) and for the wolf (he, part of him, or his shadow was on each page). It was an interesting way to introduce the other kind of number. (I'm sure it has a title, but I can't remember it. So, this novel had first, second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. instead of one, two, three, four, five, etc.) Ordinal numbers? The regular ones are called cardinal numbers, I think. Anyway, Jill enjoyed this story a lot. The poor wolf becomes a vegetarian at the end. The author did a really cute job of turning the "first little piggie went to the market" rhyme into a full story.

    What a great continuation of "5 Little Piggies". It's such a great way to teach children how to count, especially with a rhyme. Things are a lot easier to learn when you have a rhyme to go with them. The only thing that bothered me about the book was the wolf talking about eating them, maybe that went a little too far, having them line up to be eaten and everything. But overall it was a really great book. I loved the style and the hidden wolf in every picture!

    Thought this was a cute, funny book. Clever numbers book with a fun twist on the pigs and the wolf. Especially liked the last page with the wolf reading a book about being a vegetartian, with the veggies sitting next to him. Was amused to see that it was written by BYU graduate, which is where I attended college.

    A lot going on here but it works. There's the "this little piggie" rhyme expanded to 20 pigs, with pretty good rhymes. There's the Big Bad Wolf hiding in each spread. There's a number matching the number on each pig's shirt to look for on each page as well.And there's a story, with a scary moment or two from the wolf and a happy ending all around. Fun for older pre-schoolers.

    This book was really cute and I thought it had a fun idea, as well as great illustrations. It would be fun to read with a kid and help them see and recognize the numbers on each pig and see if they notice the uninvited guest watching the pigs get ready for their meal. Cute, fun, and interactive.

    This is a good book to read for young children. It is a cute story, that expands on the average 10 little piggies story. The story is cute!

    The best part of this counting book was finding the big bad wolf hiding in each scene.

    Really enjoyed this book and found it cute to teach children about numbers while they remember the mother goose nursery rhyme, "This little piggy..."
