No mud equals no fun for three little pigs.

Three little pigs try everything in their power to make or find mud. Along the way they learn a valuable life lesson.


Dalton is currently in the third grade and is illustrating his third book in his imaginative

adventure series with his dad, Super Pete Saves the Day, while writing another book on

pigs, Snouter Pig, and brainstorming the second book in his mudhog series. Dalton has a

large collection of stuffed pigs of all shapes and sizes as well as his own small library of

books about pigs.

He holds a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and likes to practice and enter

tournaments. He also plays basketball, baseball and runs five kilometer races. Dalton

wants to be a fireman, a policeman, a detective, a doctor or a writer when he grows up;

depending on the day you talk to him.


When it comes to reviewing book for children, I use a few different things to determine my opinion on it.

Was my child focused on the book as we read it together? Yes
Did she enjoy all the pictures or artwork throughout the book? Yes
Did she understand the meaning of what the book was about when we
discussed it afterwords? Yes
Did she ask me to read it again? Yes

Overall my child really enjoyed this book. When we finished reading it, the pictures guided her so she could re-tell the story. The pictures went with the story that was written and was easy for her to understand.
