Reading Level: Read Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★

Homer wants so badly to play a game. But not only do his sisters, Lolly, Molly, Polly, and Dolly refuse to play with him, but so do Duck, Rabbit, and Pig. But before refusing to play, Pig does mention a game that he played once – a game named Piggle. Can Homer unravel the mystery of Piggle and convince his friends and sisters to play with him?

Discussion.

Homer’s relationship with his four sisters is not the best – there is obviously some degree of animosity between them, and Homer even has a dream in which they treat him very meanly. In the end, although Homer knows how to play Piggle, his friends and sisters are all (physically) fighting over how to play the game and Homer runs off with Bear so that they can play the game in peace.

One thing that I did love was the fact that Homer’s exclamation of choice is ‘Beans’. : )

Conclusion. Just okay.
