Synopses & Reviews
Our favorite porcine-brother duo is back in another kid-friendly seashore adventure.
Little brother Dink wants to take a nap, but Fergus has other ideas. He has a new pirate hat and big plans to build a pirate ship out of sand! Dink tries to help, but he cant do all the things his big brother can, and soon hes erupting into a full-fledged temper tantrum. Fergus tries everything to stop it, but Dink gets more uncontrollable by the minute. Aaargh! sometimes it just feels right to squint your eyes, pace the shipdeck with hands on hips, and act like a scurvy dog of a pirate. You might even forget what was so terrible in the first place.
"Porcine brothers Fergus and Dink are back in this sequel to 2011's Pig Kahuna, and younger brother Dink is having a bad day at the beach. The water is frigid, sand gets in his food, and a giant wave leaves him covered in the detritus of the sea. Luckily, Fergus knows how to improve his brother's mood, letting Dink be the captain of the pirate ship he's sculpted out of sand. 'You're a perfect pirate, Dirk!' Fergus tells his livid, seaweed-swathed brother. 'You even have the stink eye!' Sattler's thickly painted acrylics easily conjure roiling water, cloud-swept skies, and the turbulent emotions of one small pig. Ages 3 6. Agent: Anna Olswanger, Liza Dawson Associates."
