Wild Boars Cook

Wild Boars Cook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE BOARS ARE BACK! But watch out, because this time theyre not only bossy, selfish, and stinky, theyre hungry, too! If you thought Boris, Morris, Horace, and Doris already had bad manners, wait until you see them concoct a Massive Pudding. And if this pudding sounds horrible, the ingredients will leave you speechless!

Meg Rosoff and Sophie Blackall team up again to delightful results in this companion book about the beloved disgusting wild boars. The wild boars have established themselves as forces to be reckoned with, and this second installment will not disappoint—its laugh-out-loud funny!

Review:

"The 'bossy/ and selfish/ and stinky/ and hungry' foursome of Meet Wild Boars concoct dessert in this droll sequel. To the delight of readers who may occasionally run afoul of etiquette enforcers, the omnivorous boars have lamentable manners, as their stained, scruffy hides and gleaming eyes suggest. Moreover, they devour everything in the linoleum-lined kitchen they inhabit. When Doris discovers a recipe for the 'messiest, stickiest, gooiest, chewiest, most delicious pudding in the whole wide world,' the boars mix the ingredients ('chocolate-covered chocolates,' donuts, plus bananas and a squid) in a huge yellow bowl, using a rather hooves-on approach. 'Now, do you think Boris and Morris and Horace and Doris sat with their hands folded and their napkins on their laps?' Rosoff disingenuously asks when the repast is ready. Blackall depicts the piggish sprees in cheerfully klutzy ink-and-watercolor. In keeping with the boars' egregious flouting of rules, the recipe at the end, for just one 'Massive Cookie,' says nothing about sharing. Ages 2 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The boars from "Meet Wild Boars" are back, and this time they're hungry. Together, they come up with a rather imaginative recipe for a disgusting massive pudding. Full color.
