Piggie Pie is a 1995 children's picture book by Margie Palatini.


Gritch the Witch has a hankering sheet for Piggie Pie and flies off to grab some pork on Old MacDonald's Farm. [1]


Ann A. Flowers, of Horn Book Magazine reviewed the book saying, "Extremely amusing and certain to be appreciated by young listeners of the more robust sort".[2] Dawn Friedman, of Common Sense Media reviewed the book saying "With sly tributes to at least three popular kids stories (Wizard of Oz, Old MacDonald, and The Three Little Pigs), this is sure to be a popular read-aloud — and with adult help, kids can get in on the jokes, too".[3]

It was the 1998 winner of the Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book Award of the Kansas Reading Association.[4] Piggie Pie is ranked number 37 on the 2007 National Education Association list of "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children."[5]
