Canadian Materials
Little children will love this book. The pastel-coloured illustrations are humorous, with little details that delight young listeners or readers.

Canadian Materials - Joan Payzant
Little children will love this book. The pastel-coloured illustrations are humorous, with little details that delight young listeners or readers, details such as bubbles overflowing a bathtub, Chutney's ballet slippers, Bing's huge cake pushing open the oven door, the joyous reunion of the two friends and their animal guests. Highly Recommended.

A simple story of friends who learn that friendship matters as much as individual success.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-A simple story of friends who learn that friendship matters as much as individual success. Bing, who loves to cook, and Chutney, who loves to dance, live together happily until the Sunday that Chutney decides to move to the big city to seek fame. Alone on Monday, Bing opens a cooking school and soon becomes well known for her culinary skills. Meanwhile, Chutney's dancing brings her renown and adoration. Happily, by week's end, the two are reunited, although it is unclear whether they will again become roommates. In addition to an ambiguous ending, some of the writing is vague; at times, the book reads as if a scene or two were missing. However, the watercolor cartoons are of a higher quality than the text. They depict Bing as a smiling pink pig, often clad in a jaunty chef's hat. Chutney, a grinning gray elephant, dances through the book in toe shoes and tutus. Due to large white areas that frame many of the scenes and vignettes, the art is relatively small, making the book more suited to lap sharing than to group use.-Denise E.

Kirkus Reviews
Large print, telescoped illustrations, and extremely rapid outcomes from decisions propel readers through this whimsical story. Best friends Bing, a pig who loves to cook, and Chutney, a dance-loving elephant have lived together for three years, and "every day was a very good day." One Sunday, Chutney announces her decision to become a famous dancer, packs her bags, and leaves. Bing hides the tear that wells up at Chutney's announcement so as not to darken the moment, then opens a cooking school the next day. Opening day produces a crowd of students. Chutney meets with similar success, and by Thursday is dancing in the "Great Hall" before a throng of adoring fans, a day on which Bing has become a famous baker. By Friday Bing is munching on leftovers and Chutney is having the hotel-room blues, so on Saturday she comes backs for a reunion, where Bing cooks and Chutney provides the entertainment. The point is not the pace, but the results: friends support friends in this blithe fantasy with its strong message. Readers impatient for the next adventure of Holly Hobbie's Toot and Puddle will be glad to have this while they wait. (Picture book. 3-8)
