PreS-Gr. 1. Pigs rock? Do they ever, in this high-style picture book that uses geometric shapes and edgy graphic illustrations to tell the story of piggies in a rock band. "Pigs rock. Pigs roll. Pigs sing with heart and soul." That swinging introduction leads into the story of four pigs who play not only rock but also country and jazz. The rhyme is bouncy as it takes the pigs through their day, sleeping when the sun's out to get ready for their concerts at night: "Fans clap / Fan cheer. / It's the pig rock band they love to hear." There's even a bit of a story line tucked in the text as the band has an accident on the road that means that they may not make their date. The art, reminiscent of Lane Smith's work in Pinocchio (2002), has a joie de vivre that permeates every page. The various graphic elements can be as simple as the pigs in "funky suits" set against an expanse of white, standing on a block of red, or as intricate as the contrast of a circular band shell set against a city skyline, all vertical shapes, each building accommodating rows of rectangular windows. Sharp! Ilene Cooper
