Don't Be a Pig in a Panic
by Leila Lynne Leidtke

This is a children’s story teaching two important lessons: Look before you leap and haste makes waste. The characters: Freddy, Harry and Larry are three little pigs in the jungle and Old Uncle Boar is their instructor. Freddy is fearful, Harry is in a hurry and Larry is a listener. They are confronted with various jungle enemies and react according to their natures. At the end, Larry calls for help and is surrounded with pigs that help him chase away a threatening tiger. The images are wonderful, showing the pigs’ expressions of fear, panic, sadness and victory according to each part of the story. All readers may be reminded to listen and not be a “pig in a panic.”
