A Fun, Entertaining Read 3 Jun. 2011
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
Brothers Dink and Fergus love going to the beach. Together they collect all sorts of treasures, from seawood, to rocks, to sea shells and they even find a surf board that they name Dave. Not one to venture into the ocean, Fergus is about to over come his fear with the help of surfboard Dave, thanks to his little brother Dink.

Not only is this a fun read, but it's brightly colored illustrations had me wishing I could whisk my kids to the beach for the day to look for treasures. Pig Kahuna is the perfect book to pick up on your way to the pool, the beach, or to enjoy while snuggling up together before nap time. It's a wonderful summer time read!

What's cuter than surfing pigs? 1 Sept. 2011
By FIRR-Kids! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I think the title's cute play on words gives the reader a little heads up at what this book will be like. Fergus, and his baby brother, Dink, are spending their Saturday on the beach. Dink sports a turquoise Hawaiian shirt paired with orange Bermuda shorts while his brother goes for the super casual look with just a diaper. They are intent on collecting treasures that the big waves are bringing up to the shoreline. They are extremely intent on not touching those big waves. Despite his beach apparel, Fergus is afraid of the water.

Thus far, the two piggies have amassed quite a collection: some seaweed, a pebble that looks like an eyeball, and a shell that may or may not be a real shark's tooth. They are admiring their booty when the best treasure of all appears at the edge of the water - an honest to goodness surfboard. Although surfing is definitely out of the question (no thanks, scary disgusting water), the brothers concoct dry ways to enjoy the board. They adorn the board with their other treasures and name it Dave.
After some time under the hot sun, Fergus sweetly toddles off to buy ice cream cones. While he is gone, Dink does the unthinkable. Feeling it is too cruel to keep a surfboard tethered to the beach, he tosses it back into the ocean where it can be wild and free! When Fergus sees this, he is so distraught that he forgets all about his fear and leaps in to save Dave. Water swells under the two, they rise up in the air and ... Pig Kahuna indeed!

That one exhilarating surfboard ride is all it take for Fergus to forget about his disdain for the water. After that, the boys are glued to that board, riding the waves all day long. Pretty neat how Fergus was able to conquer his fear of the water - which completely changes the way the spend the rest of their day. These pigs are no longer bound to the hot sand. They are wild and free in the water, surfing and searching for treasures.

Setting a surfboard free: A fresh new tale 20 Dec. 2011
By Debnance at Readerbuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Fergus and his little brother, Dink (wearing a diaper) are collecting objects on the beach when they run across a surfboard. Because the ocean had perceived yuckiness, however, they did not surf on it, but made it into a friend they named Dave. Dink decided Dave wanted to return to the ocean so he set Dave free. Fergus rushed into the water to save Dave and, before he knew it, Fergus was surfing.

"Dink looked long and hard at Dave.

He seemed to have lost his shine.

`You miss the ocean, huh, big fella?

You should be wild! And free!'"

Fergus, Dink, and Dave, their treasured surfboard, will give your little one a case of the giggles ... 21 Aug. 2011
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Fergus and his little brother, Dink, were standing on the beach watching the waves come in and out as they brought them special treasures. It was great fun to add to their collection, but if it meant going into the water, Fergus was simply NOT interested. Dink, who was in diapers, didn't seem to mind yuk, but "there was a lurking, murky ickness" in that water that made Fergus's eyes roll and set his teeth on edge. There were plenty of treasures to be found when they rolled in on the waves. Dink found some seaweed to make a crown with, "a pebble that looked like an eyeball," and a shell that was could pass for a shark's tooth.

All of a sudden there was the most amazing treasure they had ever seen. Fergus and Dink's eyes grew wide as they spotted a white surfboard with a beautiful red stripe down the middle. They hid behind a palm tree for a whole fifteen minutes to see if anyone would come to claim it. Of course that was the proper thing to do, but when no one came they "decided to make it the star of their collection" and name it Dave. Dink and Fergus had all kinds of imaginative things to do with Dave, including pretending to paddle him out in the ocean as Dink played lookout. When Fergus went to get ice cream Dink decided to free Dave and let him go back into the ocean. When Fergus discovered what had been done he began to panic. Would he be able to get Dave back out of that icky ocean or would he float away forever?

Fergus, Dink, and Dave, their treasured surfboard, will give your little one a case of the giggles. These two pigs and their surfboard are very popular around here and no doubt will find fans everywhere (even in the desert). The artwork meshes perfectly with this piggy tale and is especially funny when Fergus's eye's grow wide and tentative just thinking about that icky ocean water. Dink doesn't seem to be afraid of anything and is so adorable that were he made into a stuffed animal he'd become a treasured one. Of course you can't have everything, but if you'd like Dink, Fergus, and Dave, they'd probably enjoy coming to your house to make you laugh!
Great Summertime Read 16 July 2011
By Cheryl C. Malandrinos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Brothers Fergus and Dink love hanging out at the beach. The water rolls in and leaves behind wonderful treasures. One day, it leaves behind the greatest treasure of all: Dave the surfboard. But when Dink realizes Dave misses the ocean, Fergus will have to overcome his fear of the water to save his prized possession.

This is such a fun book. You have two little pig brothers-one afraid of water-who hang at the beach to collect neat things. It reminds me of what our girls do when on vacation. Fergus and Dink pick up their special treasures until they come to the best treasure ever. They find new uses for their loyal companion and all is well until Dink tosses Dave back into the ocean and Fergus has brave the "lurking, murky ickiness factor of the water." Sattler's style is simple, but effective.

With fun and colorful illustrations, kids will have a blast with this one.
