Description

“A story with the echoes of Seuss and Willems.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A boatload of giggles will keep the reader returning for more easy-to-read fun.”— Kirkus Reviews

The first book in the vibrant and laugh-out-loud funny early reader What This Story Needs series is perfect for fans of Dr. Seuss and Mo Willems!

What this story needs is a pig in a wig, on a boat in a moat with a frog, a dog, and a goat on a log...

As a panda in a blouse, a skunk on a trunk, and more hop on board, it becomes clear that what this story really needs is a bigger boat! Join Pig on an exciting boat ride as she discovers that life is more fun with friends in this fantastic, funny read-aloud about friendship.

What this reader needs are all the books in the series!

  • What This Story Needs Is a Hush and a Shush

  • What This Story Needs Is a Bang and a Clang
  • What This Story Needs Is a Vroom and a Zoom


About the Author

Emma J. Virján was born under an Aries moon on a Wednesday, her dad’s bowling night. She loves to draw and work in her garden, and she often lets her dog sleep on the couch. She makes her home in Austin, Texas, where she spends her days as an illustrator and graphic designer. Unlike Pig, Emma has never worn a wig, but she is thinking of buying one—a red one, of course.
