A Most Unusual Pig


Written by Anna Notley, illustrated by Rozzy Hibbard

A story about wanting to fit in and the importance of finding one’s own voice, with lots of fun animal sound effects to encourage your child to participate in telling the story.

Ideal for use with children in the first two years of school (age 4-7). This book has been written to accompany the LanguageLift program, but can also be used independently. The explicit story elements will make it particularly helpful for those struggling with oral language.



A Most Unusual Pig provides an excellent introduction to narrative story structure, with all key story elements made explicit. The story imparts an important lesson about being different. It also features interesting adjectives (e.g. unusual) and provides an opportunity to work on sound/'saying' verbs (e.g., cluck, purr, bray, snort). Whimsical illustrations and lots of different animals – and animals noises! – will appeal to young children and encourage them to read the story. The story of Priscilla the Pig shows the value of persistence and learning to accept yourself as you are. You can use this book to discuss:
  • How everyone is unique
  • What your child thinks they are good at
  • How being yourself makes you feel happy
