If you give a pig a party,she's going to ask for someballoons. When you give her the balloons, she'll want to decorate the house. When she's finished, she'll put on her favorite dress. Then she'll call all her friends -- Mouse, Moose, and more.
The little pig from If You Give a Pig a Pancake is back, and this time she wants to throw a great big party! Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond have created another winning story for this beloved character in the tradition of the best-selling If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
"The perennially popular party theme, paired with the playfully persistent porcine star of If You Give a Pig a Pancake, ensures that these collaborators' latest addition to the series (which began with If You Give a Mouse a Cookie) will be eagerly celebrated by their fans. After decorating the house with balloons and donning her favorite dress, the party gal attempts to phone her friends to invite them to her fte. Since they aren't home, she jumps in a bicycle basket as her accommodating caregiver transports her to search for them. On the way, they come across a street fair, where the energetic pig finds her pals and enthusiastically enjoys the amusements before they all head home to party. The vision of the girl pedaling her bike with eight animals aboard including a snake coiled atop her head will bring on ample giggles, as will the sight of the pajama-clad menagerie (the snake wears a sock) preparing for a sleepover. Bond makes particularly clever use of the spreads when conveying the mayhem of the bumper cars and pillow fight scenes. As in the earlier volumes of this serendipitous series, this caper comes satisfyingly full circle, with the pig asking for a party all over again. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)"
