The laughter is nonstop as everyone's favorite greedy and selfish pug is sent to obedience school in this picture book from #1 New York Times bestselling author-illustrator Aaron Blabey.
Pig was a pug
and I'm sorry to say,
after years of his antics
it was now time to pay.
Pig's bad behavior has finally caught up with him -- it's time for OBEDIENCE SCHOOL! Can this terrible pug ever be tamed? Not if he can help it...
Rich with author-illustrator Aaron Blabey's signature rhyming text and unforgettable illustrations, Pig the Rebel is a laugh-out-loud story that follows the nine previous books in the series (Pig the Pug, Pig the Winner, Pig the Elf, Pig the Star, Pig the Fibber, Pig the Stinker, Pig the Tourist, Pig the Slob, and Pig the Monster).
K-Gr 2--Pig the pug is back, and he has been a very naughty dog! The story opens on a scene of domestic destruction; oil is spilled all over the rug, and there is a surfboard smashed through the TV set. Pig is dispatched to obedience school, where he meets a hilarious group of dogs and a dog trainer who has no tolerance for any shenanigans. After the first command to sit is bellowed his way, Pig is determined to break out and take the rest of his classmates with him. Absolute mayhem ensues, and an explosive calamity causes a dramatic set of changes to Pig, leaving readers laughing out loud and wondering if our hero can indeed have a true change of heart. VERDICT Laugh-out-loud funny illustrations will have devotees of the series hoping that Pig hasn't really transformed and will send new readers looking for previous titles to enjoy the exploits of this unforgettable character.--John ScottCopyright 2022 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.

Praise for Pig the Winner:
The goggle-eyed cartoon illustrations are fun, funny, and appealingly grotesque in their exaggerated goofiness, and they are a good match for the rhyming text. — Kirkus Reviews
