Told in verse, this spry story stars a piglet determined to dance despite his parents' objections. "The kid-tickling energy and silliness remain constant," commented PW . "Amidst the merriment, readers just may pick up on the importance of bucking stereotypes and listening to one's own drummer." Ages 4-9. (May)
