Happy Pig Day!

Mo Willems. Disney-Hyperion, $8.99 (64p) ISBN 978-1-4231-4342-0
It’s “the best day of the year”—Happy Pig Day! Piggie goes hog-wild with her porcine friends, but Gerald feels left out and shrinks away. After Piggie finds her friend, Gerald works himself into an existential meltdown: “I do not have a snout. I do not have hooves! I am not pink! I want to say, ‘Happy Pig Day’ in Pig! But I am not a pig.” As always, Willems’s delightfully mismatched best friends communicate with bold declarations and gestural expressions that convey a vast range of recognizable emotions—from the agony of feeling left out to unbridled joy at celebrating all things pig. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
