Praise For Ten Hungry Pigs

Praise for Ten Pigs: An Epic Bath Adventure by Derek Anderson:

"Anderson's joyous, porcine counting rhyme is bathtime (and storytime) fun. His bright-eyed, cartoon porkers, rendered in 'ink, Photoshop and soap suds,' are expressive, goofy and engaging. Toddlers will enjoy this, the cleanest piggy count ever." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The animated cartoon characters exude personality and add to the humor, particularly when the pigs are all featured together in the overcrowded tub. Because of its big, vivid illustrations and rhythmic, sprightly rhymes, this story is ideal for sharing with a group as a read-aloud. The ending, in which it is revealed that the wolf is actually a pig in disguise, is a clever and satisfying conclusion to this funny counting adventure.... Pithy and brisk, this book is a solid choice for children learning to count and young readers looking for a good laugh." -- School Library Journal


Praise for Little Quack by Lauren Thompson and illustrated by Derek Anderson:

"The charm is in Anderson's comical, eye-commanding acrylics." -- Booklist
