Editorial Reviews

Susan Schmidt
This little piggy snores so loudly that she is chased away from each farm animal's sleeping spot before she finds a species that isn't kept awake by her snoring...the barn owles. With thick black outlines, the solid water color simple story uses humor, repetition, and animal sounds to engage its audience.
The Horn Book Guide
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This one-joke paper-over-board book about a snoring pig who can't find a place to bed down for the night follows a simple pattern. After being kicked out of various homes by sleep-deprived pigs, cows, ducks and people, the pig finds a place with the barn owls, who stay awake all night anyway and greet her "Z-z-zoink!" with a "Who?" Most A Pair of Protoceratops has a good eye for strong graphics: he sets off the herds and flocks of animals with one eye open all night and paws or hooves clapped over their offended ears with flat, patterned backgrounds, and outlines the shapes with heavy, often scalloped lines. Despite the book's roundabout route to the punch line, children will enjoy chiming in on the animal sounds, and the crowds of animal faces are amusing. Ages 2-6.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-"There once was a pig that snored so loud...Z-Z-ZOINK!...she woke up all the other pigs! The other pigs oinked her away." She tries sleeping with cows, sheep, ducks, chickens, goats, and even frogs but is mooed, baaed, quacked, clucked, naaed, and gribbited away when she wakes them up. She even tries sleeping with the people in the house but is again turned away. The pig finally figures things out and goes to sleep with the barn owls. All of the ingredients for success are here: a quick pace, repetitive phrasing, a chance to participate by making animal sounds, a satisfying conclusion, and bright clear illustrations. Rendered in colored markers, the artwork will look familiar to fans of Cock-a-Doodle-Moo! (Harcourt, 1996). Children will enjoy Z-Z-Zoink! shared one-on-one or in storytime.-Susan M.
