Jane Yolen is a delightful writer, but it is _Piggins'_ colorful illustrations that make this book extraordinary. Graphic novel style sequences of artful drawings tell the mystery story. The complex prose is explained and enriched by the pictures. But I would have bought this book for the drawings alone. The cover doesn't convey their richness. A beautiful, clever book.

I don't understand the fascination behind this book. I didn't enjoy it but read it to my 3rd grade class and most liked it.

I liked it but elected to not give it to my eight year old grandson because I felt that he would not enjoy it.

What a charming way to introduce the little ones to the concept of mystery novels such as those written by Agatha Christe. Here we have the classical closed room mystery (without any murder of course) set in Edwardian times. In this story though, the butler most certainly did not do it as it is the butler, Piggins who solves the mystery.

I would hate to call this one a parody, but in a way it is, since to parody something the audience really must know what is being parodied. It is doubtful if the age group to which this story is targeted has read many Christe novels. On the other hand, any adult reading the book to or with the child will pick up on it immediately.

The characters in this story are all animals; English animals dressed in typical clothing of the Edwardian era. The artist, Jane Dyer, has done a wonderfully detailed and colorful job of this. Each of the animals more or less portrays an individual who perfectly matches what ever critter is used. The use of a pig; Piggins in this case, fits perfectly. You have never seen such a dignified pig in your life. Foxes, rats, rabbits, bloodhounds, and turtles all have their part.

The text is quite well done and the mystery (A stolen diamond lavaliere in this case) is well developed and if the reader is attentive enough, a few clues (not too obvious) have been laid out in nice form.

Even without the illustrations though, the art work in this one is well worth the price of the book. It is one of those that offer pictures with so much detail that each time the child reads the book, something new will be found or noticed.

All in all this is a truly fun book to read.

A coterie of opulent reptiles, rodents, and animals are summoned to an extravagant dinner. Mrs. Reynard will display her cursed diamond necklace and offer it for sale. Piggins, the butler is accused of stealing the diamond necklace. The thieves are unearthed. Jane Yolen conjures up entertaining, elegant characters that will delight readers. She gives her fictitious coterie of opulent reptiles, rodents, and animals human attributes and graces and clothes them in the finest raiment. Yolen's plot is priceless since she civilizes relentless rivals giving them poise and diplomacy. Her setting flows cohesively with her plot to reveal a remarkable arc: a rat will be a rat. Jane Dyer's spectacular art complements Yolen's narrative. Dyer adds feminine exquisiteness to her art that does not appear incredulous since readers are aware that PIGGINS is a story. One could ponder if there is ambiguity in Yolen's premise when reptiles, animals, and thieving rats wearing suits and gowns appear civilized.
Piggins is one of those rare gems: A book interesting and simple enough for very young children to enjoy (ages 3-4), with more subtlety in the text and especially in the exquisitely detailed and humorous illustrations. The adult will also enjoy the story for the beauty of the illustrations, the tongue in cheek wit, and the delight of reading and rereading and re-examining the illustrations to catch the clues to the "who was the thief?" mystery within the story.
We read this with my 8 nieces and nephews age 1-21 and all enjoyed it. It seems we still can find a new little gem in the details on every rereading. For a beautifully illustrated and gently humorous story that is very different than the run of the mill read aloud story, every family should own this. I recommend it for a gift to families with a new baby. Parents as well as the kids will love it!
