Can three jazzy pigs outfox a hungry wolf?

Satch, Mo, and Ella are the coolest cats--er, pigs--around. Satch
plays sax. Mo plays bass. And Ella sings scat-scooby-dooby, skit-scat-
skedoodle, shoooo!
When Wolfie shows up for the Big Pig Gig, ready to eat some barbecue, the jazzy trio smells trouble. Can these three swingin' pigs win Wolfie over with their vivacious vocals and toe-tapping tunes?
With cool-cat scats by Vicky Rubin and jazzy illustrations by talented new artist Rhode Montijo, this book will have readers dancin' up a storm.

Praise For The Three Swingin' Pigs

“Montijo's red-hot pictures and Rubin's skit-scat-skedoodle words make this take-off a hand-clapping, foot-stomping romp.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“The colorful, cartoonlike illustrations are a perfect match for the zany, slightly over-the-top storyline. . . . This version will have its audience howling.”
School Library Journal “Kids should get a kick out of this hip riff on an old standard.”
