Read full description of the books:
This is one of those books I read as a child that I've never forgotten. But I've never forgotten it because of how disturbing it is. Nothing on the cover or in the title really prepares the reader for the fact that when Mr. and Mrs. Pig go out, they hire a babysitter who is really a wolf in disguise. And this wolf is plotting to eat all the piglet children.
It's just . . . disturbing. Not the book you want to read to a child right before you and your spouse are headed out for the night! Hey sweetie, we're going out and leaving you with a babysitter--but be careful! She might decide to eat you while we're gone, because we'd be silly enough to hire someone dangerous! (There's a perfect little Farside cartoon about a witch hired to watch kids, but that's an adult cartoon--this is a kid's book!)
You want a good book where an anthropomorphic pig is in trouble? Try the Amazing Bone by William Steig.
Probably stay away from this "charming" tale with younger kids, especially if you have to hire babysitters. Older kids reading their own stories are probably not going to be too alarmed by the story, but only if they encounter it and want to read it.
