Fancy Nancy in her attitude, Charles Schulz's Pigpen in her execution, this mother-daughter team's heroine has a charm all her own. Princess Pig hustles to get her home ready for her "big tea party," but she can't escape her species' reputation for messiness: "The dining room needs paint and plaster./ Princess Pig paints faster and faster./ She thinks it's fine—but what a disaster!/ Pretty Princess Pig." Luckily, as the foldout finale reveals, her friends don't mind a little mess. With their pastel palette and nimble linework, Williams's watercolors match this princess's verve. Ages 4–6. (May)
