The art in this looks old-fashioned from the cover's simple design... then you open the book and you see these bright and cheery ink and watercolor illustrations! And they are gorgeous. My nephew LOVES lions and HAD to read this book and boy was it a ton of fun. I really liked that the words were action oriented and taught prepositions to my nephew, something he struggles with. Even though he didn't understand that the opening and closing spreads were showing the lion escaping, he really enjoyed their romp around the house. There are so many little details in the illustrations (like the mom calling the zoo) that make the story even more fun that you'd expect too! The book's message was subtle but quite beautiful. He accepted the lion and the lion accepted Pig Pig. There was no fear over their normal positions on the food chain! It's simple and ALL showing, which is the best way to teach a child! BOTTOM LINE: Friendship is so beautiful when it's accompanied by acceptance! ______________________ You can find this review and many others on my book blog @ Perspective of a Writer.

    I enjoyed reading this. It's a bit implausible, but if you suspend disbelief for long enough the kids enjoy laughing at it. It feels very 80s- complete with illustrations that tell more story than the words do, and not a screen in sight I enjoyed reading this.

    This adorable picture book contains all sorts of prepositional phrases to support the story of how a lion escapes from the zoo, climbs a tree, and enters a window to make friends with Pig Pig, even giving him a lick on his face. While Pig Pig's mother informs him of the news about the lion's escape, he simply tells her he already knows--without letting her know that he's had an upclose and personal visit with the lion. I particularly loved how the story starts and ends on the endpapers.

I particularly loved how the story starts and ends on the endpapers. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are filled with soft colors and the delighted looks of glee on the faces of Pig Pig and the lion as they frolic throughout the house. Observant readers will also notice other features in the illustrations, such as the dimayed housecat Fluffy, disconcerted by the lion's encroaching on his territiory.

    That is one adorable lion. A cute little story that uses many prepositions. I rather enjoyed the humor from some of them. Had to re-read the book to see how the cat fared throughout the book (because I didn't notice him until the end!). Nice lions like that should be allowed to roam free. :-) Might it work in a ST? I'd have to think on that. 10/16/13: Used in my Friends theme. The kids loved the pictures and loved seeing what was happening.

At least one child didn't quite pick up that Mom Pig didn't notice the lion. The "ON the TV" reference was lost on them, but the adults smiled. Still a fun one and they liked the ending.

    I'm tempted to include this on our "school skills" shelf. It gently teaches prepositions, which can be found in bold within the text. It is a moderate story with silliness hidden in the illustrations. Reading it with the 4 year old I found myself explaining the illustrations more often than normal. Maybe because the little guy was tired. He seemed to like it but he wasn't jazzed about it like some of the other books we read today. I'm tempted to include this on our "school skills" shelf.

    This is a nice little book that introduces prepositions. I have high school students that struggle to recognize prepositions and look at me blankly when I ask them if they know what one is, so I am amused to find a children's picture book focused on them. Bonus: the lion is very cute in the illustrations. This is a nice little book that introduces prepositions.

    a lion sneaks into a pigs room and spends the day hiding in his house. This book was heavy on pictures but really cute. Toddler for complexity but better as a one on one. I did this with preschoolers and the pictures were a huge part of the story which gave them trouble in a large group.

    All of the "Pig Pig" books are very cute, and this one is no exception. A lion escapes from a zoo and comes into Pig Pig's house. But it is clear from the start (through the lovely illustrations, full of smiles and giggles) that Lion and Pig Pig are just playing together...

    This is a great book to use to introduce prepositions. A lion escapes from the zoo and finds his way into Pig-Pig's house. Well illustrated, the simple text on each page contains a prepositional phrase that captions the illustration. Filled with humor, this is a great concept book.

    Eh. Not imaginatively magical like Pig Pig and the Magic Photo Album

    Love the highlighted words to correspond with the pictures as Pig Pig has quite the day with a lion.

    I liked this very much. I am sad that the rfid tag was put on the endpage of the book, because the illustration is part of the story.

    A very well executed concept book. Teachers looking for materials to teach about direction of position words will find a prize in this title.

    A fun introduction to prepositions for the preschool set. I would also use Pig Pig Meets the Lion for a pig themed story time.

    When a lion escapes from the zoo, he chases Pig Pig all over the house. Showcases prepositions.

    David McPhail pig books are recognizable by even the littlest of readers. This one is a wonderful addition to any kindergarten class room where students are learning: above, below, next to.

    Great one for toddler/preK storytimes; positional words.

    Come on folks, beautifully illustrated, very funny, clear use of prepositions (great for ELL learners), fodder for a sequel.
