Pig’s Progress

by Jeanette Sears, illustrated by Adela Slomski


Price: £6.99
Publisher:Piquant Editions (Distributed by IVP)
Published:Spring 2011
A glorious fantastical mixture of Animal Farm, various parables, Nursery Rhymes and Pilgrim’s Progress amusing to read but with an underlying serious message. The Big Bad Wolf is not all he appears to be at first, and amid dreams and double dreams, the third of the ‘Three Little Pigs’ finds salvation.
I was constantly amazed by the little references to things that were obvious connections to something written about such as the Catechism Cat not being able to pronounce Ms, they all came out as Miaows, so she wrote the word ‘mission’ in her tray. Of course a cat would have a tray you could write in, why was I surprised! Penguins in penguin suits, pigs insulting each other with phrases familiar to us all, this is a work of genius, weaving all these strands together into a fun, surprising but thought provoking read. Enjoy! But heed the message, it is a modern parable.
