Peppa Pig and the Vegetable Garden

Release Date - February 2014

Peppa Pig
Candlewick Press

Book Review by Bob Walch

If your child can’t get enough of Peppa Pig and her buddies on TV, this picture book will probably be a big hit with the youngster. Peppa and her little brother, George, help Grandpa Pig out in the garden. Not only will they learn about nurturing seeds so they become healthy plants but Peppa and George will also discover there are some pretty interesting creatures out in the garden.

Snails, butterflies and birds all call Grandapa Pig’s garden home. The snails and birds also like to nibble on seeds and young plants so there’s work to be done protecting the veggies.

After harvesting some blackberries and some fresh veggies, Mummy Pig and Grandma Pig make lunch. Unfortunately, George  isn’t really into eating salad until Grandpa creates a “Dino-saw” plate. George loves this looks of this special veggie dish and digs in.

The art work in this picture book isn’t all that interesting but young readers don’t seem to mind. The storyline is taken from the TV series so isn’t that original but, if your child loves Peppa, these are minor concerns.
