PreS-K—Fans of the protagonist of What This Story Needs Is a Pig in a Wig will be glad she is back with another fun adventure with her friends Squirrel and Rabbit. Pig prepares a picnic with "some good friends[,] crunching and munching by the trees," until a sudden storm has them making a mad dash for safety. "Whoosh Boom Plop Splash." Can Pig save the day? The digitally painted illustrations follow the text, making it easy for emerging readers to recognize new words. They will want to reread this journey over and over again.
VERDICT Another hit in the series, this offering is sure to fly off the shelf.
