If you give a pig a party, she's going to ask for some balloons. When you give her the balloons, she'll want to decorate the house. When she's finished, she'll put on her favorite dress. Then she'll call all her friends -- Mouse, Moose, and more.

The little pig from If You Give a Pig a Pancake is back, and this time she wants to throw a great big party! Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond have created another winning story for this beloved character in the tradition of the best-selling If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

I'm a big fan of Numeroff's "If You Give..." series, and this adorable little book is one of my favorites out of the set. The plot is fun, revolving around the idea of what happens when the girl in the book gives her pig a party, and it makes a full circle from beginning to end. The pig is excitable, friendly, energetic and easily distracted while the little girl takes a more responsible, almost motherly role. If your little ones or storytime kids or students love this book, they can read more about some of the other characters in the book in the rest of the "If You Give..." series; some of the pig's friends who appear in this book, such as the cat and the dog, have books of their own that Numeroff has written.

The illustrations are super cute and simple, and I just want to take the little pig out of the book and squeeze her. Most of the drawings are full of action and will tickle kids who will love the pig and her friends too. Also, maybe this book will introduce kids a little bit to how their parents feel when they continue to ask for things like parties and ice cream and rides.
