Overview

The second book in the Bing and Chutney Adventures series tells how a special friendship began.

Bing is a young pig. One day she moves into a little house. In the small garden she plants flowers and bushes. Bing loves her new house with its cozy fireplace, bookshelves, and workshop. By the road Bing erects a shiny red mailbox so that she can receive letters. But when she checks the mailbox, it is empty.

Although Bing is very happy, her home is missing just one thing: friends.

Bing decides to paint pictures of all the friends she can imagine.

At 1 o'clock she paints a giraffe

At 2 o'clock she paints a cow

At 3 o'clock she paints a rooster

At 4 o'clock she paints two kangaroos

At 5 o'clock she paints a zebra

And at 6 o'clock she paints a special picture of what her best friend should look like!

Soon after, into Bing's home walks an elephant who introduces herself as Chutney — and she looks just like the last picture Bing painted. They both know immediately that they will be best friends. Together they eat and tell stories far past bedtime, until they fall asleep together in front of the cozy fireplace. For Bing and Chutney it was the best day ever.

With a great imagination and a little creativity, Bing, an extraordinary pig, is able to make her dreams come true.

Author Biography: Andrea Wayne von Königslöw creates illustrations with a scratchy innocence that appeals to children and adults. She is the author of the popular Toilet Tales (1985) and Would You Love Me? (1997). Bing and Chutney (1999) is the first title in the Bing and Chutney Adventures. Andrea lives in Toronto with her family.

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Materials
Von Konigslow does a fine job with these lovable characters in her watercolour illustrations... A great addition to my Friends storytime.
— Catherine Hoyt
Children's Literature
A little imagination can go a long way but sometimes when asked to join in, the audience can get lost on the journey. That's how it goes with this story and its relationship to the reader/discerning listener. It begins sweetly enough with the introduction of title characters with endearing names—Bing and Chutney. Bing enjoys her charming new house and wishes for a best friend. Soon she decides to do something about finding that best friend and she sets about drawing pictures of imagined friends. A new picture is started each hour and set on the floor to dry when completed. She ends with a picture of her best friend that, unlike the previous pictures, she hangs on the wall. Here is where we get lost. Bing is still wishing and suddenly Chutney appears, claiming to be her best friend. The rest of the story is a short, disjointed jumble that left this reader scratching her head. The most enjoyable aspects of the book are the illustrations and for young listeners, the repetition of text. Curiously, a big point is made to move to each new drawing/action by the hour but there are few relevant clocks in the book. Not my first choice, but little will ones like to participate in repetitious reading. Part of the "Bing and Chutney" series. 2001, Annick Press, $18.95 and $5.95. Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer: Trina Heidt
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-An overall-clad pig named Bing buys a cozy house, plants a garden, and paints portraits of six prospective friends, from which Chutney the elephant springs to life (with luggage). This animal "pig"malion and his creation share a meal, tour the house, and tell stories, then fall asleep as the other painted, now-alive critters cheerfully peek in at them. The watercolor characters in cartoon style are appealing in their simplicity. White space and minimal backgrounds are used to advantage, and the text is appropriate for beginning readers. There may be questions, however, about how the animals came to life.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Canadian Materials - Catherine Hoyt
This, the author/illustrator's second book in the Bing and Chutney Adventure Series ... is a short simple story about friendship and imagination. The large text makes it easy to read. Bing, who is very happy in her shiny little house with a small green garden, thinks she has everything, until she realizes that she doesn't have a best friend to share it with. Bing uses her imagination to paint pictures of what friends might look like. Finally, Bing paints a picture of what a best friend might look like and tapes it on the wall. That evening, Bing's new best friend, Chutney, arrives just in time to share a huge mountain of spaghetti. Chutney looks exactly like Bing's picture, and they know immediately that they'll be best friends. Bing and Chutney spend the evening talking and telling stories. It's the best day ever. Von Konigslow does a fine job with these lovable characters in her watercolour illustrations. This little book will make a great addition to my Friends storytime for preschoolers. Recommended.
