Pig was a Pug
and I'm sorry to say,
he was greedy and selfish
in most every way.


Pig is the greediest Pug in the world. He is ill-tempered, rude and unreasonable. When Pig the Pug is asked to share his toys, something unexpected happens... Hopefully Pig has learned a lesson!

I really wanted to love this book based on the great reviews online. We enjoy Piranhas Don't Eat Bananas and read it all of the time. Hilarious. I found the story line in Pug the Pig to be less engaging and we don't laugh when reading this book at all. I'm hoping that this book will show it's worth as my 2.5 year old gets older. It might be me - I just don't get it.

      Hilarious read with well illustrated pictures. My 3 year old knows it word for word now we have read it that much l, and my 1 year old finds it in the book case and brings it to me to read. A huge favourite in our house!

            I bought 'Pig the winner' a few months ago for my three year old and he then begged me to buy the whole series, which I did and I do not regret it at all! They're all very funny and are not too long, so the little ones don't lose interest half way through. I definitely recommend this book for parents of kids up to about 8-9 years of age.

                      Children's story written in a humorous style that has a moral. Could be read to young children and is also an easy reader for beginning readers. Very amusing illustrations. A joy to read for adults too!

                        Aaron Blabey

                        Aaron Blabey's life doesn't make any sense.

                        He is best known for his well-loved children's picture books for which he has won many awards including a Children's Book Council of Australia - Book of the Year Award, a NSW Premiers Literary Award for Children's Literature, a KOALA Award, a YABBA Award and a Children's Peace Literature Award. He's also been the National Literacy Ambassador and is a proud ambassador for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

                        But dig a little deeper and his past gets quite shady.

                        He spent 13 years as an actor appearing in numerous plays, TV shows and films. He was regularly cast opposite proper actors like Hugh Jackman, Jacki Weaver, Guy Pearce, Bryan Brown, Joel Edgerton and Ben Mendelsohn, all of whom were too kind to ever point out that his own acting was "just…awful", as he describes it today. To his continuing bewilderment though, he did once win an ACCTA Award (AFI) for Best Actor, a fact that cannot be adequately explained.

                        To complicate matters, he worked for a time as a staff writer at a major global advertising agency where he "learned a great deal and wished for death every single day", before spending a couple of years attempting to teach 'Creative Thinking' at a prominent Sydney design college. Furthermore, he's exhibited his art in various galleries, spent some time as a grape picker, worked in a video store and - astonishingly - once modeled clothes in a glossy weekend supplement.

                        He lives these days in a beautiful town in the Blue Mountains with his preposterously short wife and their two gorgeous boys, where he creates books, listens to his beloved vinyl record collection through killer 70s speakers and celebrates loudly every fifteen minutes that one of his all-time, top-ten heroes - Nick Cave - recently chose to record one of his books.
