No one loves Christmas more than Pig. And the world's greediest pug will stay up all night to get his presents! When Pig yips at Santa and finds himself joining in on the flying sleigh ride, things quickly get out of hand in a way that is pure Pig pandemonium.
Pig the pug's selfishness and greed remain unchecked in his third book, in which he's anticipating Christmas with an almost maniacal fervor: "He'd written a list,/ and he'd asked for a lot./ But Santa takes orders,/ so why the heck not?" After staying up late on Christmas Eve, Pig is disappointed by the small stack of presents left for him, so he chases Santa up the chimney, chomping down on the elf's rear end before the reindeer help him make a speedy getaway. As in Pig's previous books, there's little comeuppance or attitude reform it's essentially a book about a fairly bad dog indulging his id. Ages 3 5.
