Overview
An unlikely friendship blossoms between Mango, a little girl with an assortment of talents, and Bambang, an Asian tapir.
Mango Allsorts is good at all sorts of things, not just karate and chess. Bambang is most definitely not-a-pig and is now lost in a very busy city. When the two unexpectedly meet, a friendship begins. Bambang requires a great deal of coaxing and comforting to help him acclimate to the big city, and Mango is just the girl for the job. But when Mango faces a nerve-racking challenge of her own, will Bambang be able to return the favor? Filled with adventures and plenty of banana pancakes, this collection of four stories is sure to amuse and inspire any child or not-a-pig."

Told over four chapters, this sweetly old-fashioned story from newcomer Faber follows the friendship that develops between a competent, kindhearted girl named Mango and Bambang, a talking tapir from Malaysia, whom Mango takes in after finding the animal cowering in the middle of a crosswalk, snarling traffic. Overcoming his initial nervousness (after a month, “Bambang still hid, sometimes several times a day, from possible tigers”), Bambang has a mixed experience at the local pool and has a run-in with one of Mango’s neighbors, who collects everything from “pickled puffer fish” to the “mustaches of famous murderers” (and the occasional tapir). Vulliamy’s chic black-and-white illustrations, accented with lavender, play right into the primness and dry humor of Faber’s storytelling, helping to create a bustling, adventure-filled urban landscape that readers should be eager to revisit. Ages 6–9. (June)
