Cassius's Corner - Lily to the Rescue: Two Little Piggies

Welcome back to another review from me, Cassius!  I really like sharing Mom's blog during Dog Days of Summer.  Who knows, maybe I'll continue my activity some once August is over.  This time around I'm sharing the second book in Lily's series so read on my two-legged friends!

TITLE: Lily to the Rescue: Two Little Piggies
AUTHOR: W. Bruce Cameron
PUBLISHER: Starscape
PUBLISHING DATE: March 17, 2020

FROM GOODREADS: Lily lives with her girl, Maggie Rose. Once a stray, Lily was rescued by the kind people at the animal shelter run by Maggie Rose's mom. Now she has a very important purpose: to rescue other animals in trouble.

In Lily to the Rescue: Two Little Piggies, Maggie Rose and Lily meet two little piggies who are lost at a rest stop and need their mother. But no one knows where they came from. How will they ever find the piglets' mom? It's Lily to the rescue!

MY THOUGHTS:   This book was even more fun than the last!  All my favorite characters are still around - Maggie, her parents, and Casey the crow.  This time the team is called upon to rescue to baby pigs who have been dumped at a truck stop.  And once they are rescued, the whole family has to pitch in to feed Scamper and Dash every two hours which wears everyone out.  Not to mention how energetic the little piggies are.  But never fear, Lily is there to help and she'll make sure the piggies are guaranteed to have a happily ever after.

Once again this book itself is quite pretty.  They are wonderful grey-toned drawings which in this sequel, are mixed with orange to highlight the cover.  I am a pup who does love details.  My only complaint, and it has nothing to do with the book, is how many times Apollo has whined that he wants a baby piggy.  He doesn't listen to me because I keep telling him we have a baby piggy - HIM!

If there are kids in your home, are just people who are kids at heart, this is a wonderful tale full of fun animals and a great family.  Check the series out because I, Cassius Grey, say so!

RATING: 5 Paws (or maybe pig snouts)

Here Apollo!  Here's your baby pigs.  Now be quiet and let me read!


  1. I mean who doesn't live a cute little pig?? This sounds adorable😁

    1. Piggies are super cute. I used to want a pet pug really badly.

  2. Lily sounds lovely to be helping other animals in need like that!

  3. I love illustrated chapter books. 💟 I'm with Apollo, Cass, I think the farm needs a baby piggy! 🐖

    1. Yea, except that The Farm is a myth and we live in town ;) The neighbors down the street do have a pet pig though.
