PreS-K—Fans of the protagonist of What This Story Needs Is a Pig in a Wig will be glad she is back with another fun adventure with her friends Squirrel and Rabbit. Pig prepares a picnic with "some good friends[,] crunching and munching by the trees," until a sudden storm has them making a mad dash for safety. "Whoosh Boom Plop Splash." Can Pig save the day? The digitally painted illustrations follow the text, making it easy for emerging readers to recognize new words. They will want to reread this journey over and over again. VERDICT Another hit in the series, this offering is sure to fly off the shelf.—Andrea Pavlik, Huntington Public Library, NY
“...schools and libraries should plan on picnicking with this pig in a wig.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“[Readers] will want to reread this journey over and over again...Another hit in the series, this offering is sure to fly off the shelf.” (School Library Journal)
“Virjan’s brightly colored charcoal artwork, populated by cheery, expressive cartoon creatures, is a great complement for the cumulative rhyme, alliteration, and onomatopoeia, and the cyclical nature of the story will help new readers.” (Booklist Online)

A somewhat easy read (blanket and ketchup can be challenging words) that features ch sounds but not so much you'll be dreaming of ch words. There's something about a pig that wears a wig but no other clothing that I find jolting whenever I see him. Kids will probably think he's giggle-worthy. Other than that, this is a fun story of some creative problem solving and a great idea for a picnic location on a rainy day. Great read before a picnic.
