KIRKUS REVIEW

 The fantastic adventures of a little pig who ``leaves'' his parents in order to fight pirates, to fly on a butterfly, and to ``Sailaway, sailaway,/Over the foam./Blow with the gale away,/Bail with a pail away,/Hitch to a whale, and then/Sailaway home.'' The rhymes always follow the same short and bouncy pattern; the animals look like toys, and the adventures are always rooted in a domestic setting. Degen's characteristically colorful illustrations look effortless but display real craftsmanship and are quietly inventive. Perfect for toddlers showing their first signs of independence. (Picture book. 3-6)
