“My five-year-old son is giving this book a huge 5-Star vote because it kept him entertained far into the night, and he still had questions after we’d finished reading it together […] Kids will love the character of the pig, whom they’d be eager to follow in his discoveries.

About the Author
After being in the medical field for 35 years, JoAnn fast-tracked her retirement and became an author of children’s books in 2014.
Her journey as an author began when her pastor gave the church members a pink flying pig stress ball and asked them to post pictures on Facebook. People loved meeting Sir Pigglesworth and they smiled and laughed, telling her how adorable they thought he was.
She started posting little quotes with the pig doing various fun things and soon her friends and her followers told her they and their kids were looking forward to seeing what Sir Pigglesworth was up to next…A STAR WAS BORN!
Working alongside talented illustrator David Darchicourt, Wagner brings Sir Pigglesworth to life with rich and colorful imagery and dynamic tales that spark the imagination and encourage learning and conversation.
Sir Pigglesworth invites readers on journeys to real-world locations like New York, London, Vancouver, Bermuda, and San Juan, and each book teaches children to read while also immersing them in cultures within a larger societal context. Each story is also followed with links to web resources about the places Sir Pigglesworth visits, and access to free coloring pages from JoAnn’s website, so the fun can go on after the book is closed.
A fun little story of a pig getting lost in an airport, then traveling through London! A fun series for kids to learn about new places! -Amazon Review
