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.

Synopsis:

Elizabeth really, really, wants a pet. But her parents do not. Instead they give her a cactus. Even though Elizabeth's new plant proves to be a good listener, Elizabeth still really wants a pet. When Elizabeth campaigns to find the right pet, her family imagines some hair-raising possibilities, until Doug comes along—who is, without a doubt, the most unusual, perfect pet of all.

Synopsis:

Bird?

Bunny?

Turtle?

Fish?

Elizabeth really, really wants a pet, but her parents say NO to all of her ideas. Instead, she ends up with a cactus called Carolyn. And after some very unsuccessful campaigning, to her wonderful surprise, Elizabeth encounters Doug — surely the most unusual and special pet of all.

Even Carolyn agrees.

Margie Palatini and Bruce Whatley team up for a wacky picture book that handles a topic every parent and child will relate to — choosing that just perfect pet.
