From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2–As she frolics round the countryside, a joyful pig radiates positive self-esteem: "I am simply tickled pink/to be exactly what I am." Weeks's songwriter background shines throughout, and Berry's humorous, clever illustrations enhance the deceptively simple narrative. For example, opposite the text proclaiming how smart pigs are, the young porker is depicted in graduation garb. When hunting truffles in the woods, the Eiffel Tower is seen in the background. A piggy bank resides on the shelf in the bedroom. And when this little creature wallows in the mud, it is in a Roman-style bath. All in all, this is one happy porker. A must for those looking for books on self-esteem, and just plain fun for everyone else.–Robin L. Gibson, formerly at Perry County District Library, New Lexington, OH
