Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Little Pookie's fourth adventure, the cartoon pig is so excited for its birthday that it wakes its parents twice in one night. To celebrate Little Pookie's big day, Daddy makes pig-shaped pancakes, and after Little Pookie's nap (though it's the parents who really need one) it's time for more surprises. "Attention, all Pooks!/ Are you here and awake?/ The time has arrived/ for your present and cake." Birthday boys and girls should relate to Pookie's elation, while adults should appreciate the commiserating wink. Up to age 3. (May)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is Little Pookie's birthday and he is so excited that he is up before daylight. His mother puts him back to bed but not for long. Little Pookie is up at dawn. Dad is the one who makes the delicious pancakes with their happy birthday message and a piggy face. Then it is time to get dressed and take a rest. But it is not over yet; presents and cake still await. There are four candles on the cake and Pookie makes his wish alongside his new friend, a fuzzy green froggy. What a glorious birthday! Kids will celebrate with Little Pookie and parents will commiserate and smile at the recognition of what Little Pookie's parents are experiencing in this amusing board book. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
