In this follow-up to Chickens to the Rescue, this time it's the pigs who “help” the Greenstalk family with a week's worth of problems. Wearing swimsuits and expressions of fierce determination, they water Mrs. Greenstalk's flowers (a kiddie pool is involved). When the rooster has a sore throat, they snort and squeal with abandon, and they inadvertently tear Jeffrey's treed kite to pieces following a particularly acrobatic rescue. In a twist ending, the Greenstalks find that a new crew of animals has caught the rescue bug. It's a one-joke book, yes, but Himmelman's expressively comedic illustrations keep it as funny as ever. Ages 4–8. (May.)
