I am pleased to be taking part in the blog tour for the Policeman Pete series, with a focus on, and review of, The Lucky Piglet.
Policeman Pete Holiday Safety Tips:
6 Policeman Pete says that when you play outside in the hot sun you tend to sweat more and so your body loses a lot of water. Therefore it is very important to drink plenty of water, to prevent you getting a headache and feeling poorly.
Policeman Pete and the Lucky Piglet
This story actually happened, but involved Sarah’s (my daughter) pet lamb, called Bubbles. Sarah was 4 years old at the time, and completely misunderstood that, when the local farmer said that the lambs were going to market, he did NOT mean hers. She took off and hid with the lamb.

The Lucky piglet is a sweet story of friendship, family, and misunderstandings.
The story is simple and easy enough to be read by an early reader just starting out, although the commas do have a habit of being misplaced. The story was fun and my kids enjoyed the simple tale of two children running off to hide their pet piglet after hearing a conversation. Cute.
