KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Pig watches over his three children as Mrs. Pig gets a night out. Television, a pillow fight, and coloring soon replace a tearful goodbye as Big Piggy, Middle Piggy, and Little Piggy quickly discern that their father is a bit of a pushover. The fun continues as Mr. Pig dozes in his chair, unaware of the time. Hearing Mrs. Pig’s return, he hastily sends the children to bed. Mr. Pig might think that he’s fooled his wife, but her keen eye observes the mess throughout the house (including pictures of Mr. Pig sound asleep) and the fact that her children have gone to bed with their clothes on. Mrs. Pig kindly compliments her husband on a job well done, possibly thinking of a future outing for herself. Bright and lively illustrations, full of wiggly detail, show off this funny pig family as they go through the common parental ritual of the changing of the guard. (Picture book. 4-7)
