Sassy Pants Learns About Strange Creatures by Carol A. Brown

 Strange creatures are popping up all over the place on Farmer White's farm! What is a little pig supposed to do? Does she have to be polite? Should she just ignore them? And what if they're scary? How can you tell the difference between dangerous, or just different? That's what Sassy Pants has to learn when she wanders off by herself in places she isn't supposed to. But sometimes she learns the easy way, and sometimes the hard way. Which one will it be this time? And will she learn what's right in time to stay safe? Follow along with Sassy Pants and Friends, as they try to figure things out.
Available on Amazon and other retailers.

She enjoys reading, nature and music, playing the piano, knitting, crocheting, painting and telling stories! As a retired educator, “I dedicate myself to knitting sweaters and spinning yarns!

I was blessed with this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and no other compensation has been given. 

Sassy Pants is a cute little pink pig with some life lesson adventures. Never a dull moment in Sassy' s days. In this book, she starts off on a mission to set things right with Boss Hog, after getting in a bit of trouble, I presume, in a previous book.
But Sassy, as most young pigs with alot on their minds, often gets distracted, and soon forgets all about her making-amends mission. Instead, her stomach takes control and she heads off looking for some yummy grub. 

In a different pasture, Sassy Pants meets a strange new creature. Sassy, once again, has a change of plans when this new creature demonstrates his spitting talent. Sassy meets several strangers that day, and must decide if they are good strangers or dangerous ones. In the end, she learns a valuable lesson about trust and friendship.

I enjoyed this book, and can't wait to share it with my elementary age daughter. It was written in a simple easy to read manner, with the exception of several Spanish words interspersed. Those don't take away from the story, instead they add character, but certainly make it a little more difficult for a younger child to read. This book contains several valuable lessons, a great cast of barnyard characters, and a wise old horse to help with the teaching. Sassy Pants is very happy on the farm, and wishes to remain there for a long time.
