What’s a younger brother to do when his older siblings are having all the fun? Jacob, aka Little Pig, would desperately like to don a uniform and play an instrument—piccolo, harmonica, or even tuba—along with everyone else. When he witnesses a practice session, Little Pig figures out exactly how he can contribute. Emily Eiden manages the interplay of narrative and dialogue masterfully. Her narrative is clear and firm, and she brings out all the playfulness, teasing, and sincerity in the youngsters’ conversations. As the band negotiations play out, she transports listeners to Grandpa Pig’s abode. Jaunty band music accompanies the story. A.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2012]
