Summary
"While Pig Pig's mother makes breakfast, Pig Pig and the lion run down the stairs, through the kitchen, over the furniture, and romp around the house. Prepositions abound in this playful story, and an unexpected friendship is forged. But will the lion be able to stay, or will he have to go back to the zoo?"
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Pig Pig is in for an adventure here! A lion has escaped from the zoo and winds up climbing through the bedroom window. And so the chase is on with prepositions abounding as the lion follows the pajama-clad pig into the kitchen, under the table, and across the living room while an oblivious mom cooks breakfast. McPhail's watercolor art is a frenetic pleasure, and there's no reason to be scared: Pig Pig has a slight smile on his face all through the ordeal. Besides being fun for reading, the boldface treatment of the prepositions makes this a good choice for school grammar classes.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "When a lion escapes from the zoo, Pig Pig's mother finds out from the newspaper. Pig Pig learns about the lion when it climbs through his window and plops onto his bed. The escapee chases Pig Pig through the house (letting McPhail give a comedic lesson in prepositions like "into" and "down"). "If I found the lion," Pig Pig asks his distracted mother, "could I keep him?" Paired with deliciously deadpan prose, McPhail's spreads maintain a satisfying sense of movement and tight comedic sequencing as the lion skulks around the house before slipping out unobserved. Readers will have a blast being in on Pig Pig's secret. Ages 4-7. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
