When Pigs Fly – Valerie Coulman

When Pigs Fly presents a delightful answer to using creativity to make the seemingly impossible happen.  When the Ralph the Cow decides he wants a bike he is told that cows do not ride bikes.  His father finally tells Ralph that he can get a bike “when pigs fly”.   It would appear that the story should end there for Ralph the Cow since pigs do not fly, but Ralph has other ideas.  With determination and creativity things happen that surprise and delight.

The pictures in this book are of particular note.  They are extremely bright and colorful and draw the reader into the story.  I also found the interaction of the human characters with the animals well executed.  The pictures of Ralph and Bill in the helicopter are precious.

This is an enjoyable book that can be appreciated at a number of different levels.
