About the BookAfter learning pigs are unable to look up, Pia is on a mission to find a way for her and best pig pal, Patches, to share the beauty of the sky.
Book SynopsisA fiercely determined girl will do anything to help her best pig friend finally see the sky in this unique friendship story Pia just found out the terrible news that pigs can't look straight up, which means her best friend and right-hand-pig Patches has never seen the sky. If you ask her, that is absolutely cuckoo bananas. Now Pia is on a mission to share the beauty of the big wide sky with Patches . . . and she will do whatever it takes! From debut author-illustrator Nic Yulo comes this story of determination, empathy, and learning to look at the world (and the sky!) in a whole new way.
"This endearing, lighthearted tale rests on an easy science concept . . . makes a fine springboard for imaginative thinking and art activities focused on helping pigs look upward. The colorful, lively, expressive illustrations, set mostly in square or rectangular panels, are appealing; readers will also appreciate the text, often set in colored type and including onomatopoeic sound words used to very dynamic effect." --Kirkus "This is a sweet, funny tale of a girl who wants to share her love of the sky with her best pal. Highly recommended for story times, classrooms, and one-on-one reading." --School Library Journal "Limited primary color palette combines with a goofy "did-you-know" premise to make a cheery, engaging storytime selection. The bold lines, matte colors, hand-lettered text, and plentiful onomatopoeia give a frenetic, made-by-kids feel that is sure to be crowd-pleasing, while comic-style panels move the story forward, stretching young readers' visual literacy skills . . . amusingly demonstrates that new experiences are always better when shared." --BCCB
