TEN HUNGRY PIGS by Derek Anderson.  New York: Orchard Books, 2016. 32p.  SIBN 978-045416848-9 hc.$16.99    PreS - Gr. 2    E PIC

Anderson's ten pigs are quite clean after TEN PIGS: An Epic Bath Adventure, and are now looking for a snack.  As Pig One is ready to take a bite of his peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Pig Two runs up to add pickles, followed by Pigs Three through Ten, who add interesting foods to the sandwich.  Finally, Pig Eleven, who turns out to be a wolf of sorts, chases all the pigs away except one pig.  The story, written in rhyme, is fast moving, funny, and has a plot twist!  The illustrations are huge two-page spreads of very distinctive and comical pigs.  Readers will laugh out loud at the antics and expressions of these "Ten Hungry Pigs."
