    1. My least favourite story by Miss Potter so far Don't think I'll bother reading this one to the kids.

    2. Beatrix Potter's yarns for children are somethings quite endearing, while at other times they can get quite boring and preachy. This is one very good example. Its about Pigling Bland who along with his brother is sent to the market with his papers pinned, but along the way his brother loses his papers and then they are caught by the police. The police then takes his brother home leaving Pigling Bland to go to the market on his own. While on his way, he discovers his brother's papers among his ow [...]

    3. Pigling Bland had 7 brothers and sisters. 6 of them were sent to other places as they could all be feed. Pigling Bland was on his way to be find work on a farm when he meets Pig-Wig. Together they run off and dance. This is a long story for Beatrix with few color pictures. Beatrix was in a hurry when she wrote this story as she was getting married. It's nice enough.

    5. from her mom:This little book has been Eliza's favorite bedtime story throughout September (2008). Her dad has read it to her 20+ times, so she has large chunks of the text memorized now. I have only read it once, and all I can remember is that it's about Pigling Bland, who is tossed out of the farm by his mother to go earn a living at market; there begins his adventure. This is one of the longer Beatrix Potter stories - somewhere between the length of a typical picture book and a beginning chap [...]

    6. This is another Beatrix Potter book, copyrighted 1913. The story is about a pig named Aunt Pettitoes who is taking care of a group of eight piglets, most of which are troublemakers of a sort. Pigland Bland and one of his brothers is walking to market, his brother continuing to cause problems.While at a farmer's house he encounters a female pig, and the two escape from the farmer.This is sort of a rather strange tale and one a person really doesn't want to think about a whole lot; a pig voluntari [...]

    8. I feel like every time I finish Beatrix Potter's stories, I always have the same thought: I don't understand 100% what just happened but I think I enjoyed it.

    9. Not a fan of this book!

    10. There are at least half a dozen sub-plots not tied up here. And I never knew that pigs lived in such an oppressive police state.

    11. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if those anamorphic animals in a children's story lived with humans who still cared to eat them even though they could talk? This is such a book. The subtle overtones of government oppression and longing for a freer society were also evident. I no longer know if this is a kids book or not but I know I never plan to read it again. Also the version I had was missing the first 14 pages for some reason. Looked like it was printed that way?

    12. Pigling Bland's mother has many children, so she sends Pigling and brother Alexander off to market. I was a little concerned at this point, I must say, but later Pigling revealed that his intention was to attend the hiring fair, that stalwart of agricultural institutions. Needless to say, the initial plans do not go smoothly, but after several close shaves it seems Pigling has a happy future in store.

    13. This one was okay. It was on the longer side and it had a real plot, unlike some of the other ones which are more a snapshot of a moment or getting to know a character. The trouble was that I didn't find the plot all that exciting. I especially didn't like the beginning before Pigling set out.

    14. from Jake's mom:wow, I wasn't expecting this book to be as long as it was! I thought we'd have just a quick, short little bedtime tale like a lot of the other little Potter books. Yeah . . . not so much.It was also a little hard to read . . . like the first time you read Jane Austen and you're sitting there going "Uh, what?"

    15. This little piggy went to market, this little piggy didn't get there and rescued another pig What happened next? I guess we'll never know. Too much of an abrupt ending, I get the notion of leaving the reader wanting more but there is no sequel to this book so I must live my life without ever finding out

    16. One of her longer stories, this one concerns a mother pig with too many piglets and sends many out into the world on their own. The story tells of the adventures of mainly two of them. Miss Potter's introduction of more complicated words into children's stories makes her stories well worthy reading. All the Potter books are endearing, and this one is no exception.

    20. Ermmmhhh I dunno what to think/say about this story. Jadi license Pigling Band tertukar dengan punya sodaranya, si Alexander. Petualangannya emang lumayan seru tapi endingnya ahh. Segitu aja. Padahal untuk Beatrix Potter cerita Pigling ini lumayan panjang.

    21. Read as part of The Beatrix Potter Collection: Volume One.Pig licenses? Really?Despite loving the name of Pigling Bland, his tale was awkward. The plot was disjointed and the ending too sudden and abrupt.

    22. A longer tale telling of Pigling Bland as he sets off to market and ends up rescuing another pig from a not so pleasant farmer. Still beautifully written and illustrated, this story will appeal to readers of all ages

    23. This was not one of my favorites. I do love the names of the characters - Aunt Pettitoes and her little girl pigs Cross-patch, Suck-suck, Yock-yock and Spot and her four little boy pigs Alexander, Pigling Bland, Chin-chin and Stumpy.
