School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-The popular pig returns in a new series of adventures. The three short chapters revolve around familiar rites of spring: cleaning, shopping for a new bicycle, and sleeping in a tent in the backyard. Here, of course, each activity ends with the usual Poppleton twist. His attempts to clear his house of clutter bring more items in; too many choices at the bike shop overwhelm him and he decides he can walk or run about town; and after a wakeful night in the tent, he sleeps all day. The text is just right for beginning readers and the lively illustrations offer plenty of visual clues and a touch of the absurd humor that appeals to this set. An irresistible addition.-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
