Oink Oink

First featured in Geisert's Oink , these vociferous piglets are back for more noisy hijinks. When the excitement of a new day beckons, off they scamper, leaving mother pig sleeping soundly--or so they think. But as the sun rises and contented squeals echo over the cornfields, this matriarch is soon in hot pursuit of her errant offspring. An ear of corn tucked into each snout, the endearing porkers lead their disgruntled parent on quite a romp, up stream and down dale, their high-pitched wails drowned out by her thunderous roar. Finally, the chase draws to a close and, in subdued single file, the piglets return home. Graceful etchings in black, white and pale pink capture the riotous freedom experienced by the piglets, while the title words, placed in amusing sizes and configurations over these runaways, perfectly convey abundant variations of porcine palaver. This witty and intelligent picture book is sure to elicit squeals of laughter. Ages 4-8. (Mar.)
