Pigloo is an explorer. His destination? The North Pole. Big sister Paisley has doubts about Pigloo's plan, but Pigloo knows that explorers have to be patient as well as brave. When Pigloo takes his sled to the top of a hill, he sets off on his expedition--with a little unexpected help.

This sweet, expressively illustrated story shows that sometimes the greatest adventures are the ones that happen in your own backyard.

Praise for Pigloo

"In this warmhearted winter story, Pigloo, a porcine explorer-in-training, is eager to mount an expedition to the North Pole. . . . In accessible and playful language, Pace (the Vampirina Ballerina series) builds her story around Pigloo’s independent mindedness and. . . . Hussey (Not This Bear) creates an expressive cast of pigs." —Publishers Weekly -

Anne Marie Pace; illustrated by Lorna Hussey

Anne Marie Pace is the author of the Vampirina Ballerina books and is an explorer in her own right, although she hasn't yet made it to the North Pole. She lives with her family in Virginia.

Lorna Hussey is the illustrator of the much-loved Not This Bear by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. She currently lives in Great Britain with her three horses, three dogs, four chickens, one rooster, three children, and one husband. But no pigs (yet).
