Little Pookie

Sandra Boynton. Random/Corey, $5.99 (18p) ISBN 978-0-375-87175-7

Little Pookie's thin fifth outing feels like a belated introduction to the character, as his mother details 10 things about her beloved little one. "1. You like macaroni./ 2. You're suspicious of peas./ 3. You are happy outdoors with your ears in the breeze," Little Pookie's mother says, as the piglet sits on a tree swing. It's a marginal addition, but Little Pookie's toddler personality still shines. Up to age 3. (Aug.)
