Description - Captain Small Pig by Martin Waddell
I'm Captain Commander!" Small Pig said. Aye-Aye, Captain Small Pig!" yawned Old Goat. "You are in charge of this boat!" But Small Pig soon tires of rowing and falls asleep, and before they know it the boat is drifting across the lake, and grumpy Turkey is in for a soaking... Martin Waddell, award-winning author of Can't You Sleep, Little Bear, perfectly captures the magic of a day out.

Book Review: Captain Small Pig by Martin Waddell - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (14 Jun 2013)
Captain small pig is a cute book which is nice and innocent and makes the perfect bedtime story.
He plot is neither complicated and doesn’t make excuses for itself. Three friends decide to go on a boat ride, turkey, goat and pig. They are the best of friends and so interact as only best friends do. Of course there are some mishaps and amusing results which make is very an enjoyable read.
The illustrations are quite simple sketches with plenty of colour and add quite a unique feel to the story. Overall a nice children’s book and prefect for a bedtime read.
