This is a funny story about a little piggy who gets into a heap of trouble over a puddle of mud.

LeVar takes viewers behind the scenes to watch how artists bring this book to life through the art of clay animation. From painting and sculpting the characters, to the painstaking process of filming the action frame by frame, the secrets of “claymation” are revealed.

Feature Book Segment
Meet the Clay Artists – LeVar meets Cody and Becky who bring this feature book to life through the art of clay animation. Cody shows how to sculpt with clay by making the clay characters in the feature book. Becky shows how she makes the three dimensional grass and mud for the background pictures.
Let’s Play in the Mud – The perfect recipe for a very large mud puddle is to use bulldozers to mix a lot of dirt and water together. That’s how a puddle for mud racing is made. Watch the racers run through- and get stuck in– the mud!
More Fun With Clay – Becky and Cody position the pigs and LeVar takes picture after picture as each position is slightly changed. This is the art of clay animation!
Review Books : Oink by Arthur Geisert; The Hippopotamus Song: A Muddy Love Story by Michael Flanders and Donald Swann; This House is Made of Mud by Ken Buchanan.
