Book review: Perfect the Pig #bookaday

Perfect the Pig book coverby Susan Jeschke
Picture book
Interest level: K-3
Reading level: 3.3
3 out of 5 stars


This story is sadder and more dramatic than a lot of children’s books, so it may not be for every child. First, Perfect is the runt of his litter and is not accepted by his siblings or mother. There is also a pretty creepy bad guy who doesn’t treat Perfect very well at all. Perfect has some scary and sad things happen in his life, but the story does have a good ending. It is a story about love and friendship, good and evil.

The illustrations are black and white sketches, which I feel match the more mature story. This is a longer picture book with a fairly high reading level.
