Richard Rosser’s musical adaptation of his award-winning children’s book is a humorous lesson in etiquette for kids ages 3 to 10. On his first day of summer vacation, Sammy Hamhock joins his father on Piggy Patrol, giving out tickets for displays of “piggy” behavior. Infractions include offenses parents are likely to wish earned real-world citations—from talking too loud on a cellphone to cutting in line. As the day wears on, Sammy learns that all of us, including his father, must be mindful of our own tendencies toward “piggy” behavior.
