Book Details

Most piglets want to be pigs when they grow up. Not Liam. He wants to be a bunny. Even if it takes a lot of practice to learn how to hop...and to eat salad. Even if no one believes that a piggy can be a bunny. With a lot of determination, and a little help from his grandma, Liam is determined to make his dream come true.

For children who put on a cape or a tutu, who dream of being someone or something different, Piggy Bunny offers a reassuring and fun opportunity to believe in themselves.

Reading Guide

In The News

“This will be an enjoyably loopy and stealthily reassuring readaloud any time of the year, and it would make a terrifically offbeat Easter entry.” —BCCB, starred review

“Picture books about pigs and bunnies are perennial kid favorites, and this one, which contains nice sentiments about believing in yourself, is likely to be enjoyed long after the Easter Bunny's departure.” —Booklist

“A small piglet with a big dream--to be the Easter Bunny--will have readers laughing out loud in this spunky outing about self-esteem.” —Publishers Weekly

“Liam was born a piglet, but he knew in his heart that he was meant to be the Easter Bunny. …The pigs are drawn in heavy black lines but the body position and other touches like the way arms are held convey the emotions of Liam, family and friends. The colors that make up backgrounds on the pages and varying shades of pink among the pigs add interest.” —Children's Literature

“Tankard's characteristic bold black lines outline his anthropomorphic pigs, and pastel-colored backgrounds reflect Liam's mood.” —School Library Journal

“Though the believe-in-yourself theme has been told in many ways, Liam holds his own with his quiet determination. Who can resist a piglet who introduces himself with 'Hello, my name is Liam and I'll be your Easter Bunny'?” —Kirkus Reviews
