Author Notes

Laura Joffe Numeroff was born in Brooklyn, New York on July 14, 1953. When the time came for her to choose a college, she only applied to Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn for fashion design. She hated everything about it and ended up taking a class in writing and illustrating books for children because it sounded like a great class. She received an assignment to write and illustrate a children's book, and after completing it, made several attempts to get it published. After only 4 rejections, Macmillan bought it. She graduated from college with a degree and a contract for her first book.

Since then she has written over twenty books including If You Give a Mouse a Cookie; What Mommies Do Best, What Daddies Do Best; Laura Numeroff's Ten Step Guide to Living with Your Monster; Phoebe Dexter Has Harriet Peterson's Sniffles; Ponyella; If You Give a Dog a Donut; and It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse! She has received numerous awards including the Buckeye Children's Book Award in 1989, the Quill Award for If You Give a Pig a Party in 2006, and the Milner Award in 2007.

Booklist Review

Ages 3^-6. Following the same speculative logic that made If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (1987) and If You Give a Moose a Muffin (1991) so popular, this winsome picture book shows what happens when a girl gives the little pig on her windowsill a plate of pancakes. One thing leads to another: pancakes to syrup, syrup to stickiness, stickiness to a bath, a bath to a rubber duck, the duck to homesickness for the pig's farm, homesickness to packing for the trip, packing to finding tap shoes, tap shoes to performing a dance, the dance to taking photos--and eventually to another plate of pancakes. The wild gyrations of the plot will delight children as much as the clean, orderly lines and clear, gentle color of the artwork. Expect many requests for this one, from parents, teachers, and children. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2ÄThis delightful story continues the playfulness found in its predecessors, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (1985) and If You Give a Moose a Muffin (1991, both HarperCollins). Here, a little girl is the patient hostess to a demanding piglet, whose myriad requests lead them from the kitchen table to the bathtub to the backyard. Along the way, the endearing porker puts on a pair of tap shoes, gets her picture taken balancing on top of the living room furniture, prepares a stack of mail to send to her friends, and builds and decorates a tree house. Preschoolers and beginning readers will enjoy spotting the objects mentioned in the story. Beginning with the cover illustration of the piglet daintily perched on a windowsill, Bond has once again created an adorable character that expresses the text perfectly. The humor and quick pace of Numeroff's engaging narrative make this book an excellent choice for reading aloud. A surefire crowd-pleaser.ÄDiane Janoff, Queens Borough Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
