Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The publisher and author of Under a Pig Tree seem to be having communication issues. The author has written a clear, no-nonsense history of figs. But the publisher is sure she meant pigs. After all, whatandrsquo;s the difference between two measly letters? What results is a hilarious illustrated history of pigs, from the earliest times (andldquo;Pigs were presented as andlsquo;medalsandrsquo; to the winners of the first Olympicsandrdquo;) to the present day (andldquo;There is nothing better than enjoying a cup of tea or glass of milk with one of those famous Pig Newtonsandrdquo;). The author, needless to say, is not happy about this andldquo;little mix-upandrdquo; and makes her feelings very clearly knownandmdash;by scrawling all over the book!

With sticky notes from the publisher, angry scribbles from the author, wrinkles, and pages askew, Under a Pig Tree is a playful peek into a book in andldquo;midproductionandrdquo; and a humorous look at the consequences of small mistakes, by industry pro Margie Palatini and up-and-coming talent Chuck Groenink.

Review:

"For young martial arts fans seeking a lighthearted book about their hobby, Schwartz's (Hop! Plop!) story should fit the bill. While the idea of three gi-clad pigs fighting the big bad wolf is a winner, the subtle-as-a-karate-chop moral about not quitting puts a bit of a damper on the fun. Pig One signs up for aikido ('He gained some new skills,/ but got bored with the drills'), while Pig Two goes for jujitsu ('The teacher said, ‘Excellent progress./ But Pig-san, you must study more.'/ Pig Two said, ‘No way./ Sayonara, Sensei!/ I'm ready to settle a score' '). Both lack the necessary chops when the wolf comes a'blowing. Santat's dynamic, comic book — style spreads have a Crouching Wolf, Hidden Pig feel, especially when Pig Three (a persistent girl who has actually honed her skills) terrifies the wolf with a chop that smashes a pile of bricks. Schwartz's irreverent verse never falters — and any book that rhymes 'dojo' with 'mojo' is one that's worth a look. Ages 5 — 8. Agent: Kendra Marcus, BookStop Literary. Illustrator's agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Follow this little ninja as he sneaks up on the family dog, swipes a cookie from his brother, and escapes from Grannyandrsquo;s kiss . . . only to be out-ninjaandrsquo;d by his younger brotherandrsquo;s sneak attack! Young readers will be drawn in by the fast-paced rhymes that parallel the little ninjaandrsquo;s quick moves, and will chant the refrain with glee! This humorous ode to stalking, sneaking, spying, and scheming is sure to be read over and over again, inspiring imaginary play for a new generation of ninjas.

Synopsis:

Gadzooks! Archie the Daredevil Penguin is hiding a dark secret: hes afraid of the water and the creatures who lurk in the briny deep! And its keeping him from attending the fish fry on Iceberg Nine.
 
But penguins arent supposed to be afraid of water, especially not daredevil penguins. He musnt let his friends know! 
 
Can Archie find a way to soar above the clouds and stay out of the sea?  
 
Author-illustrator Andy Rash has created a hilarious, perfectly paced story about overcoming fear by diving in headfirst. Fans of Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds will especially flip for the loveable Archie.
