Children will delight in helping Pig discover that, with a little help from nature, he can grow his own vegetable garden in this brilliant and funny story book app.
Pig lives on an apple farm with Ms. Pippins, but he's just so tired of his apples-only diet. A little variety would be nice, perhaps some vegetables? After naughty Pig squirms his way into the neighbor's garden and feasts on squash, an annoyed Ms. Pippins ties him up in his sty where his digging creates a perfect soil bed. But where will he get some seeds? Fortunately the squash seeds he ate earlier, together with a little fertilizer of his own, provide the answer. A little patience and a bit of help from the rain and sun make his wish come true!
Based on a real-life story by Kathryn Thurman, this app is quite a treat as it brings Lindsay Ward's multimedia artwork to life. Four-to-eight-year-olds will want to touch, tap and tilt over and over again! What's more they'll discover apple recipes and a wealth of organic gardening facts right at their fingertips!

The print edition of A GARDEN FOR PIG has received review acclaim including the following:
"A Garden for Pig offers a hilariously memorable story about perseverance, patience, and the fun of organic gardening." - Suite 101
"Very creative." - Biblio Reads
"The highlight, however, is the irresistible pig's range of expressions." - Booklist
"... a great opportunity to teach kids about onomatopoeia - or the practice of using words to mimic actual sounds..." - Suite 101
"... fantastic with its mixed media artwork and fun message about organic gardening and eating a whole balanced diet." - Sweet Greens
I liked the book a lot. It has a nice blend of interactive movements and sounds. Some books that were originally print are too bland for an iPad, this one is not. Nice illustrations as well. An added feature for kids and parents who cook - recipes inside the story.
