"If you give a pig a pancake, she'll want some syrup to go with it. You'll give her some of your favorite maple syrup. She'll probably get all sticky, so she'll want to take a bath." You get the idea. Baths lead to bubbles, bubbles lead to rubber ducks, rubber ducks lead to wanting a trip to the farm. If You Give a Pig a Pancake is a delightful exploration of the scenario "if you give an inch, they'll take a mile." But who could refuse the whims of this adorable piglet? Not us, and certainly not the pig's young caretaker. Parents will feel a familiar twinge as they witness the pig's increasingly elaborate demands, and kids will be delighted that the story circles back around to the original pancake. Laura Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond--well-loved creators of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Moose a Muffin--succeed again in concocting a marvelously skewed study of cause and effect that inevitably results in a riotous read-aloud. Your kids will ask for this book again and again, and you won't want to refuse. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin SnelsonReview:
If you give a kid If You Give a Pig a Pancake, she'll want the pig to go with it. Fortunately, here is one request you can indulge without a lot of muss and fuss. Laura Numeroff's utterly charming If You Give books (including If You Give a Moose a Muffin and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie) are full of the circular reasoning and desperate "needs" of small children. In Numeroff's most recent book, an adorable piglet slurps syrup, borrows her caretaker's tap shoes, and wallpapers a tree house in a nonstop stream of consciousness thought process. This special miniature edition of the book comes with the endearingly demanding protagonist herself. Sporting tap shoes and a spiffy green, gold, and red scarf, and holding a detachable plush pancake, this 7-inch peachy pink velour pig is irresistible. Small children will need to stand guard at their bedroom doors to prevent their big sisters from absconding with the sweet-toothed swine. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
