Ducky has a great new game that he'd like to share with his friend: peekaboo! Piggy wants to play, too, but every time he tries to smile or call out “I see you!” his pacifier gets in the way. Will Piggy forget about his pacifier ... or forget about having fun? Bernette Ford and Sam Williams treat a toddler's rite of passage with sensitivity and charm.

Bernette Ford has written many books for children, including No More Diapers for Ducky! and No More Bottles for Bunny! Bernette lives with her husband in Brooklyn, NY. Sam Williams is best known for his picture books, including No More Bottles for Bunny! and Ballet Kitty for Boxer Books. Sam also illustrated the Little Red series of books by Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. He lives with his wife in Hertfordshire, England.
PreS—Ducky invites Piggy to play a new game (peekaboo) with her, but the porker's pacifier keeps getting in the way. When he giggles, it falls out of his mouth. When he drops his extra pacifier on the ground and starts to cry, Ducky tells him, "You're missing all the fun." With some encouragement, he leaves his beloved comfort object on the table. At the end of the day, Ducky asks Piggy if he had fun: "'Yes, I did!' Piggy shouts. 'No more pacifier for Piggy!'" The concise text is accessible, and Williams's softly rounded figures on stark white backgrounds are sweet and appealing. The animals, though simply drawn, have expressive faces, and their sorrows and joys are plain to see. However, parents may wonder why these toddlers seem to have no caregivers watching out for them. Children and adults grappling with phasing out pacifiers may also question the speed and apparent ease with which Piggy surrenders his. Nevertheless, the simple text and engaging illustrations will attract the intended audience and should at least serve as a conversation starter for adults looking for ways to broach this sticky subject. Libraries where Ford and Williams's No More Diapers for Ducky! (2006) and No More Bottles for Bunny! (2007, both Boxer Bks.) are popular will want to make a place for this gentle offering.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
