"A solid addition to the I LIKE TO READ series!" – School LIbrary Journal
Poor Pig! He just wants to take a nap, but his barnyard pals are making a terrible racket. Cow is on her cell phone, Cats pops balloons, and Hen saws. Pig hatches a plan to block all the noise. In a surprise ending, Pig learns that his friends have been planning a birthday party just for him. So much for napping! Hilarious illustrations, a fun story line and an easily decodable text make for a real treat for new readers.
