A Fun Miss Piggy and Kermie Adventure - a review of Miss Piggy's Night Out"
is convinced she is star material, so it only seems right that she and Kermit dine at Cloud Nine, the restaurant where all the other stars and biggies go to eat and be seen. Expecting to be 'discovered'
Piggy is dressed to the nines, however things don't quite work
the way she expects. Her problem? She a... um... makes a pig of herself with a large hot chocolate and ends up with a huge glob of whipped cream on her nose. Chaos ensues and our poor porcine heroine ends up horribly embarrassed. But not to worry --**WARNING Spoiler** -- Kermit does just the right things and the book ends happily.

In my experience with my own two children [boy and girl; 5 and 7], and with children at their school, this book is much too hard for most first graders. There is a great deal of dialog, for one thing; and plenty of non-beginner words such as: answer, chocolate, another, shouted, movies, around, whipped, waiter, problem, pointing, everyone, and napkin.
