A Parcel of Pigs
And other funny ‘tails’ for children
by Andréa Prior

How many times can you say ‘QUACK, CLACK, QUACKS’ and ‘WADDLE, PADDLE, WADDLES’ without getting tongue-tied?

Andréa Prior’s illustrated children’s book A Parcel of Pigs is a collection of quirky and appealing children’s rhymes with colourful illustrations by the author. Great to read aloud, the rhymes are written to provide an interactive and memorable reading experience between parent and child, as well as being a fun and engaging way to help children with their reading skills.

Aimed at 5 – 8 year olds, the rhymes are intertwined with humour and are full of word patterns and wordplay; a perfect way to help children with their linguistic development, pronunciation skills, spelling and memory recall. There is also a selection of engaging questions at the end of each rhyme, so that children can test their memory of what they have seen in the illustration, listened to, or read.

Each poem has a different character that children can easily engage with – they will meet the scariest mother they have ever seen, find out why Barnaby was so very bothered, how the red-skinned onion is so very tasty, how Humphrey the Hippo got so very lost, and how the naughty mouse outwitted the smart ginger cat.

Beautifully illustrated, A Parcel of Pigs will appeal to parents and children who love reading together and enjoy interactive books with funny animal and people characters. This book is original, appealing and a fun and engaging way to help children to learn!

Over 40 and a Mum to One

Bristol Mum

I bought this for my friend and her 5 yr-old daughter and not only did the mother delight in reading out loud the hilarious and quirky rhymes, but her daughter chuckled continuously and insisted her mum read each one at least twice as her eyes got ever bigger looking at the marvellous and colourful illustrations. Encouraging children to participate with the meaning and words at the end of each poem works brilliantly - it gets them thinking and feeling they're part of each and every hilarious little story. Great fun!

What a fabulous, innovative and original collection of poems by Andrea Prior. A talented poet, with a quirky, witty and unique edge. I have read these poems time and again to my 4 year old and with my niece and nephew who are 10 and 8 and they loved them, from 'Silly Dirty Monkey' to 'Cecilia's Mother', there's something for everyone. Andrea's hand drawn illustrations are truly fantastic, they compliment the text beautifully. We look forward to the next one!
