Piggy Bunny

Rachel Vail, illus. by Jeremy Tankard. Feiwel and Friends, $14.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-312-64988-3
A small piglet with a big dream—to be the Easter Bunny—will have readers laughing out loud in this spunky outing about self-esteem. Liam is not good at hopping, doesn’t like salad, fumbles egg deliveries, and doesn’t have much family support. But with help from his Web-savvy Grandma, Liam achieves his cotton-tailed vision. Vail excels at conveying childlike emotions and a realistic family dynamic (“You are a piglet... Deal with it,” says Liam’s sister). Liam’s perseverance and his parents’ steadfast support provide a welcome, positive undertone, while Tankard’s stocky, black-lined pigs pop off the pages. Ages 4–6. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. Illustrator’s agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Feb.)
