Reviews

". . . this is a pure porcine pleasure." --Booklist A warm, gently humorous story for kids who are looking to school with anticipation, not trepidation. --Publishers Weekly ...so charming it could be enjoyed at any time of year . . . Griswells storytelling has just the right amount of repetition and predictability, like a catchy song . . . And Gorbachevs pen, ink and watercolor pictures are timelessly appealing: richly colored, with soft, sketchy lines and funny details. Though this Ukrainian-born illustrators style is his own, it brings to mind Garth Williams, David McPhail and Maurice Sendak. --New York TimesWith lively illustrations and a determined, endearing protagonist, this is a perfect pick for back-to-school programs. Children will love this intrepid pink hero." --School Library Journal
