Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

A pig family adventure (Pigs Will Be Pigs, 1994, etc.) finds Mrs. Pig with a case of the sniffles, and her husband and piglets preparing to make her favorite dish to ``pick her right up.'' The three dig in, gathering utensils and ingredients for Firehouse Chili (the recipe is included, which cautions readers to ask an adult for help and notes that five heaping tablespoons of chili powder may require a call to the local fire department). Mr. Pig's enthusiasm replaces the careful measurement and attention to methodology so dear to chefs. By the time Mrs. Pig comes down the stairs refreshed and ready to face the lucky day the children have promised her, her kitchen is a disaster and those firefighters who sample the dish have four-alarm reactions. Readers are invited to deconstruct Mr. Pig's culinary efforts with an eye toward improving his--and their own--math skills. A lively presentation of a multifaceted math problem. (Picture book. 4-9) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4. A mildly entertaining picture book with a tenuous math connection. Mrs. Pig isn't feeling well, so while she rests, Mr. Pig and the two piglets decide to cook her a meal. Of course, disaster occurs when these three strangers to the kitchen fail to follow the recipe for Firehouse Chili, which is included on a double-page spread. Mrs. Pig recovers and finds a kitchen full of chaos, mess, and firefighters (dalmatians). McGinley-Nally's cartoons are humorous and children will enjoy the details as well as the bordered endpapers filled with chili ingredients and the vegetable-decorated recipe page. It is difficult not to smile at the pigs as they dance through the colorful pages. At the end of the book, readers are asked to determine exactly what mistakes in ingredient amounts were made. Most youngsters will not look carefully at the recipe as they enjoy the slight story, so they may not realize until the last page that the point is the errors Mr. Pig made rather than the mess. On the other hand, third- or fourth-graders might have fun approaching the tale as a problem-solving activity.?Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto,

A Kid's Review on October 5, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book is good for ages 5-7. Mrs. Pig was feeling under the weather so her family decided they would make her her favorite chili while she took a nap. Of course they put in too many ingredients and made a disaster. Nobody liked the chili. It was disgusting!
