Publishers Weekly
As Mr. Pig heads off to meet Miss Pig for a picnic, he encounters animals who offer him their various attributes to impress her (Fox offers his tail; Zebra offers his stripes). "Kasza's gentle tale imparts the message to be true to oneself in a delightful and unobtrusive way," said PW. Ages 3-6. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
It is a perfect day for a picnic and Mr. Pig decides to ask Miss Pig to go with him. He is unsure of what she'll say, so he decides to impress her by trying to look his best. On the way, however, he meets his friends the Fox, the Lion and the Zebra. Each of his friends give him their advice about what he should do look his best. Mr. Pig takes their suggestions and feels confident about his new looks. When Miss Pig sees him, however, she disagrees. This gentle tale about the importance of being true to oneself is sure to resonate with its young readers. The beautiful illustrations add warmth and humor to the story. A "Picture Puffin" book. 2001, Puffin Books, $6.99. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer: Shalini Murthy
