Praise For Piggy: Let's Be Friends!

“The artwork is vibrant and the oversize emojilike heads of the characters will be appealing to young children. Further, there is comfort for all in the message that an unknown friend is right around the corner and that others can be openhearted and generous.” —School Library Journal

“Lai . . . gives Piggy a good amount of personality in his brassy cartoons.” —Publishers Weekly on PIGGY

“The illustrations--rendered in pencil and watercolor, then digitally finished--are well-done, and the characters really are adorable. . . . This tale of an endearing pig will catch the attention of young readers.” —School Library Journal on PIGGY
