Britain: Muslim 'Cultural Sensitivity' Runs Amok
Nothing very special, but still an engaging adventure story with some mystery and suspense. Highly recommend for pig lovers who are ready for something a tiny bit more advanced than Mercy Watson. Food seems to be an important plot point in all pig books. Jul 14, Dianne rated it liked it. Receiving one did not affect my views of the novel. So I admit, I don't have a kid to read this one to so my work colleague and I decided to read it and discuss it. I'll keep this one short as I don't think we're even that qualified to judge picture books.
The art was wonderful and cute. It was colorful but with a bit of a washed-out look into it, which I thought was apt for the story.

Like it was colored using a watercolor. I don't know about you but when I was a kid, I loved copying drawings even if I was terrible at it. As for the story, it was simple and cute enough for its audience. Stout Sam and Pip discovered a pig in a barrel who can sniff out treasure. But Sam and Pip were not greedy and they didn't take advantage of Julie the Pig.
However, here comes our villain Barracuda Bill who steals Julie! Poor pig! The conflict was resolved, thanks to Pip, and it had its tense moments too. Stout Sam and Pip's plan to save Julie was dangerous and I'm sure little kids will get excited by it. All in all, The Pirate Pig was an okay picture book. Kitty Mrs. Murphy's Chowder Mrs.

A, especially if they reelect their Manchurian Candidate. This is a classic example of a once great people trying to accommodate for new immigrants in their overly politically correct society. The Brits have tried too hard and are giving up their own great culture. Keep bending over backwards and eventually you will end up in self-destruction. Therefore, the solution is stopping the sale of alcohol? Give me a break!

All of the negative, politically correct jargon in relation to compromising for the Muslims , will some day come back to the countries that are making these concessions, and it will be too late. There is no sensible reason to allow a religion take priority over civil freedoms. I am at a loss to understand the 'clash' between the Muslim religion and dogs. I know that it was widely publicized a couple of years ago that a young blind, Muslim man asked his local imam if he could have a guide dog to take him to his mosque.
He subsequently became the first Muslim in the UK to have a guide dog to lead him to the mosque. He was only required to leave the dog tied up outside the praying room. Likewise Pakistan, a predominantly Muslim country, holds dog shows! There is a Sieger show in Pakistan, in which the winners are sent to represent the country at an annual championship show for German Shepherds held in Germany.
