Tales of Amanda Pig, written by Jean Van Leeuwen, illustrated by Ann Schweninger, Puffin Easy-to-Read Books, 1994.
My first grade son read this book for a Literature unit on family life. He liked this book for two reasons: 1. He could read it on his own, and 2. It was funny, so he wanted to read it on his own.
And those are two very good reasons for buying a book.
