What this story needs
is a pig in a wig
baking bread,
pouring punch,
and meeting a friend for a picnic lunch.

But just as the outdoor fun and games get started, a thunderstorm rolls in and it turns out what this story really needs is . . . another place to eat!

Perfect for reading aloud, but also an excellent choice for early readers, What This Story Needs is a Munch and a Crunch is a fast-paced story about the pig in a wig’s efforts to make a lovely picnic for her friends. Simple text and rhymes make for easy listening or reading comprehension for youngsters, with the prose accompanied by simple but detail-filled illustrations.

Young readers will have fun scouring each page to notice the little things in each image, like the ladybugs hovering near the picnic, the piggy snout on the thermos, and even the pictures stuck to the fridge. Together, words and images combine to tell a richer story about making the best out of a bummer situation.

What This Story Needs is a Munch and a Crunch is in stores now.
