This little piggy has escaped from his owner and is running riot through the county fair, getting covered in gunk, globs, and other stuff representing nine colors: brown from the muddy pig pen, red from the tomato canning display, yellow from the broken yolks in the chicken coop—which provides Cole (Big Chickens Fly the Coop) the opportunity to prove, once again, that he’s virtually unrivaled when it comes to drawing hysterical hens—and so forth. By the time the wee piggy proudly wins a blue ribbon, he makes the Garbage Pail Kids look pristine—and kids will be reveling in his genially mischievous grossness. Norman (Ten on the Sled) contributes a catchy cumulative verse that riffs on “I Know an Old Lady” (“I know a wee piggy who wallowed in green./ Oh, what a scene! He’ll NEVER get clean!/ He wallowed in green to go with the black./ He wallowed in black to go with the yellow”). But it’s Cole’s porcine hero who steals the show: even the fussiest grownups will fall for this eager-eyed, grinning, leaping, prancing, filthy pig. Ewww. And awww. Ages 3–5. (June)
