PreSchool-K-Preston's fans and newcomers alike will delight in this, the sixth title about the playful porker and his archenemy. Indefatigable Mr. Wolf yet again stalks the young pig. Instead of finding him, he discovers other members of Preston's family and community. After each encounter, Mr. Wolf appears a little worse for wear until, by the end, he is dazed and covered in bandages. Meanwhile, Preston has been hiding under the flaps and he asks readers not to give him away. Children will enjoy being Preston's accomplice in outfoxing the villain. The flaps are easy to manipulate, but some of the smaller ones might hinder effective group reading. Still, the brief text printed in large, bold type and the simple, bright illustrations combine to make this new episode an enjoyable selection for one-on-one sharing.Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

From Kirkus Reviews
The nefarious Mr. Wolf is up to his nasty tricks again. This time hes looking for Preston Pig, but hes looking in all the wrong places. Each page has at least two flaps, the less obvious one hiding Preston. As Mr. Wolf looks inside the house, outdoors, down the street, and in the grocery store, lifting the other flap means the villain will find the wrong pig and it seems that these angry pigs are roughing him up out of the view of the reader. In wonderful cartoon exaggeration, his beaten, black and blue, and increasingly bandaged body shows the results as the story progresses. When hes completely battered and befuddled, and about to be trapped in a box, the jaunty Preston Pig gives the reader permission to tell Mr. Wolf where he is. Silly and funny, even the youngest readers will enjoy this peek-a-boo chase as well as being in on the secret. (Picture book. 1-3) -- Copyright © 2000 Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
