From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 William's three older siblings try to get him to get out of bed, bathe, get dressed and have breakfast in time to catch the bus for the school picnic. But William, who walks to the beat of his own drummer, dawdles in bed, talks to himself and makes funny faces in the mirror, then has a leisurely time in the overflowing tub. Afterwards, he feeds his fish Pinky and tells him a story. Inevitably, William misses his bus, but he makes his own picnic, only to be joined by his siblings when the class party, naturally, is rained out. Brightly colored cartoon illustrations, sometimes divided into smaller panels, are full of humorous detail to balance the minimal handprinted text within dialogue balloons. The buck-toothed pigs, charmingly pictured on spreads showing dozens of them romping at the picnic, have a lot of vitality. Pig William is extremely childlike as he doggedly and cheerfully pursues his morning routine and rituals, unconcerned by the passing of time. Parents of children who have their own self-set pace and ritualized activities will find this slice-of-life portrayal wonderfully funny. Children themselves will love it.

From Publishers Weekly:

If possible, Dubanevich's sequel is even more hilarious than Pigs in Hiding, which was welcomed with raves last year. There is no letup in the antics at the Pig domain, where William's three siblings keep chivvying him to hurry. The youngest porcine dawdles maddeningly while the others rush through morning chores so they won't miss the bus taking all the neighborhood children to the class picnic at Porky Park. William is left behind when the bus leaves with everyone else on board. In a gleeful switch, however, he arranges a picnic for himself and his beloved goldfish, Pinky. And his brothers arrive home in time to enjoy the fun when their outing is canceled by rain. It's all the ridiculous extras in Dubanevich's sunny-colored pictures that make her books irresistible.
