Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-K—The four bossy, selfish, stinky boars are back, cooking up a Massive Pudding to satisfy their enormous hunger. Doris finds a recipe in the book she is eating and the others gleefully help her make it. When they stir it up and it doesn't look big enough to satisfy, they improvise, throwing in some of their favorite things (like a squid). When the pudding is baked, "do you think Boris and Morris and Horace and Doris sat with their hands folded and their napkins in their laps?" Not a chance! After finishing it off in 10 seconds flat, the boars are hungry again, but Doris saves the day—she finds a Massive Cookie recipe. These wonderful hijinks with the endearing boars are pictured in wildly imaginative illustrations, including endpapers that look like boar hair. Libraries should not miss out on this fun title, which is sure to be a popular choice for a food or manners-themed storytime.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA

From Booklist

Those hellish, smelly wild boars, Horace, Boris, Morris, and Doris, return, and they are starving. Starving, I tell you! The only thing that can satisfy is a Massive Pudding. Messy, sticky, gooey, and chewy, it contains everything from bananas to squid. The boars bake, then devour. Alas, an hour later, they’re hungry once more. As in the previous book, Meet Wild Boars (2003), Rosoff’s tongue-in-cheek text and the full-throttle hilarity of Blackall’s illustrations are a perfect match. When the story has them stirring their creation, the art shows Doris whisking the batter with her tail, while the three boys wail and sob with hunger. A fine, funny read-aloud. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
