Too Many Pigs in the Pool
On Sunday, Mr. Jenkins welcomes one pig into his pool (as a guest of his neighbor Ms. Peal, who's brought along her famous seven layer dip as well). Really, how much trouble could one little pig be? But one pig becomes two and two become four... And by Saturday there are just TOO MANY PIGS IN THE POOL! This funny math-based story will have readers laughing along with pigs Percy and Wanda while learning about multiplication and the doubling sequence.

Midwest Book Review - Too Many Pigs in the Pool
“[Too Many Pigs in the Pool] pairs a math lesson with a pig escapade that delights with whimsical piggy problems. Ages 4-8 will appreciate the zany issues which emerge as one pig becomes way too many for pool play.”
Kirkus Reviews - Too Many Pigs in the Pool
Like a low-stakes version of Demi’s classic math tale One Grain of Rice, this amusing story will suit younger readers learning key mathematical concepts. Comical, cartoonish art sneaks in clever little details (like the pig conducting a workout routine wearing a headset). Math plus swine equals a pretty delightful combo in this cautionary counting tale.
