Description

Join Pig and her friends in another fun read-aloud adventure as they figure out a way to keep the picnic fun and games going, even with a little rain.

What this story needs
is a pig in a wig
baking bread,
pouring punch,
and meeting a friend for a picnic lunch.


But just as the outdoor fun and games get started, a thunderstorm rolls in and it turns out what this story really needs is . . . another place to eat!

The "What This Story Needs..." books are bright and lively and inspire giggles. "A story with echoes of Seuss and Willems," School Library Journal said in a starred review of What This Story Needs Is a Hush and a Shush.

Praise For What This Story Needs Is a Munch and a Crunch (A Pig in a Wig Book)

“...schools and libraries should plan on picnicking with this pig in a wig.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“[Readers] will want to reread this journey over and over again...Another hit in the series, this offering is sure to fly off the shelf.”
— School Library Journal

“Virjan’s brightly colored charcoal artwork, populated by cheery, expressive cartoon creatures, is a great complement for the cumulative rhyme, alliteration, and onomatopoeia, and the cyclical nature of the story will help new readers.”
