Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Twenty-six members of a hog family attend a potluck "pignic'' in this alphabet book. There's no plot, just an alliterative parade of pigs bearing food, from "Aunt Annie made apple pie" to "Zak baked zucchini bread." Miranda (The Elephant at the Waldorf) selects vittles ordinary and odd ("Ivan churned the ice cream. / June brought jam in jars. / Karl made pickled kumquat mousse, / and the lemon tarts were Lars' "). Hoffman (Three Sisters) adeptly illustrates the edible fare, shown displayed in colorful blue and terra cotta crockery. Unfortunately, the illustrator's pencil-and-colored-ink hogs are singularly unappealing. Their drooping ears and slack, pinkish-gray skin lend them a disconcerting, geriatric look; a drab palette of beige, gray and pink adds to this impression. What might have been a festive occasion is dampened by the pigs' glum expressions-readers will RSVP regrets to this pig-out. Ages 4-6. (Jan.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Twenty-six members of a pig family gather for an annual outing, each bringing a potluck specialty-some familiar and some unusual, but all alliterative. "Evan cooked eel and eggplant stew./ Fern fried fifty fish./ Gram made cold gazpacho soup./ Hank had a hominy dish." There are other alphabet feast books available, such as Anne Shelby's Potluck (Orchard, 1991) and Crescent Dragonwagon's Alligator Arrived with Apples (Macmillan, 1987), but what makes Pignic special are Hoffman's droll, pencil and colored-ink illustrations. Each "pignicing" porker has a distinct personality and a flair for presenting his or her culinary delight. As readers move through the alphabet, more and more action is shown in the background. Fun for all-and a special treat for pig fans-as a read-aloud, or for independently savoring the detailed illustrations.-Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA
