Editorial Reviews

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.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From the creator of The Wolf's Chicken Stew comes the story of Mr. Pig, who decides in a bold move to ask Miss Pig out for a picnic. On his way to the picnic, he meets a fox and tells him about the date; the fox, sensing Mr. Pig ' s insecurity, offers his lovely tail to further impress Miss Pig. Mr. Pig gratefully accepts. Further along the way the pig meets a lion and a zebra and acquires a mane and stripes to go with his handsome tail. His efforts to impress are spurned by a frightened Mis Pig, who squeals `` . . . If you don't go away, I'll call Mr. Pig. He will take care of you.'' Mr. Pig wisely runs and transforms himself back to his sweet pink self and the charming pair go hoof in hoof into the afternoon. Kasza's gentle tale imparts the message to be true to oneself in a delightful and unobtrusive way. Mr. and Miss Pig are rendered in softly luminous watercolors and have an expressive, saucy charm. Ages 3-6. (September)
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
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 Children will love the perky porcine star of this cheery tale. As Mr. Pig ponders which of several bow ties to wear, he is plainly concerned about asking Miss Pig to go on a picnic with him. However, friends whom he meets along the way rearrange his plans. Mr. Fox insists on lending his tail to create a foxy look. Lion contributes his beautiful hair, and Zebra her stripes. Full of borrowed confidence, Mr. Pig knocks on Miss Pig's door. She squeals in alarm at the monster before her and threatens to call her friend Mr. Pig. Without a word, our hero rushes off to return his finery, then hurries back to Miss Pig's house where he is welcomed with open arms. Charming watercolors expand the story, adding absurdity as each animal offers a prized possession. Funniest of all is Mr. Pig racing across the horizon, with mane and tail streaming out and the stripe coming loose on his arm, hurrying back to return his friends' belongings. Uncluttered paintings are minimal in detail, while realistically portraying the animals. Each cast of an eye or angle of a foot adds a whimsical touch. What a delightful way to say, ``You're OK just the way you are.'' Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, Neb.
