School Library Journal Review

PreS-While stargazing through his telescope, PiggyWiggy imagines himself wearing a special space suit, climbing into a rocket, and preparing for blastoff. Once in space he would explore faraway planets and have grand adventures. The short text ends with the piglet safely back home "in time for breakfast." Each page in this attractively designed book has a vividly colored background in a variety of bold shades: hot pink, bright blue, sunny yellow. The cartoon illustrations are playful and imaginative, featuring Picasso-like planets and space friends. The frontispiece shows the inquisitive pig in space pajamas, surrounded by his astronaut gear-including bubble helmet and sandwich lunch. Young children will enjoy spotting these items as they appear throughout the pages. Pair this title with Nick Sharratt's Rocket Countdown (Candlewick, 1995) for a fun-filled toddler storytime.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.
