This is a very odd book indeed. I'm reminded of Arnold Lobel's Mouse Tales and Mouse Soup by its dotty view of the world. Pog is a pig who is always asking questions about the simplest things (what does a banana do? how can you take a hole home?) and coming up with the most unusual answers. Written in very simple sentences, the language, like Pog's questions, suggests far more than is obvious at first sight and opens all sorts of lateral thinking possibilities. The layout is wonderful for youngsters - big, clear print, a few lines on the page split up by lots of little pictures. For children used to thinking about what they read and hear, this is a lovely book and highly recommended for the sheer fun of looking sideways at the everyday world.
