PreS-Gr. 2. As it turns out, if you give a pig a pancake, she'll eventually want a party--with balloons, a party dress, and guests. In the latest of the best-selling demanding-animal-meets-long-suffering-human series, the small pig protagonist needs as much activity and as many supplies as ever. This time, there's a search for friends, which leads to a street fair, a game of hide-and-seek, a sleepover, and the necessity of linens for a pillow fight. A blanket fortress needs balloons decorations. Balloons! They scream out for a party. . . . In Bond's crisp, cheerful illustrations, the pig's joie de vivre is contagious, except, that is, to her expressionless, ultra-accommodating little girl caretaker. Even considering its deliberate "if-then" pattern, the story feels loosely hinged, but young fans of the series will squeal with delight to see their pancake-loving pig once again.
