The author has written a lovely children's story to help kids confront, in a roundabout and fun way, the issue of immediate gratification, which plagues many children (and their parents!). This issue is related through the story of a boy, Bill, who has a “gimme want want” attitude that is not serving him well. Through the analogy of a pig in a pen, Bill's grandpa teaches him that a pig is best left in its pen, just like the gimme gimme want attitude is best kept contained.

This story is a great way of communicating an important lesson, and parents will surely like the values it is teaching. I also think the story concept section was well written - the author clearly put a lot of thought into the underlying concept of this book. The book interactive nature is also great, and kids will benefit from putting the lessons of this story into practice. ---- Author House Editor

About the Author:

"

Larry Marshall offers uncommon clarity on the regulation of human want. After earning his master's degree in counseling psychology, the author has spent more than thirty years working with children and families. He has worked extensively with difficult children, including those children who struggle with oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder. He comes to us at a time when the exaggerated importance of pursuing one's desires is at an all-time high. Emerging from this background in child psychology, the author employs metaphor and rhyme to reach the youngest of minds with this urgent message: learn to say no to the pig in your head. On a deeper note, he conveys a sense of hope in the notion that happiness cannot be found in chasing your wants, but contentment can be discovered on the pathway to self-trust.

Ashleigh Matthis (Illustrator) completed drawings for this project at the age of 13. She has a deep passion for her work and believes every drawing to be meaningful and special. Ashleigh is currently in the 11th grade and plans to pursue a career in Illustration and Graphic Design.
