Virjáns wig-wearing pig returns in her fourth picture book, a noisy outing that gets underway after the pig builds a bandstand and attracts an outfit of instrument-playing animals. As in the previous books, theres raucousness to spare in Virjáns punchy rhymes (This story also needs a twang, a tootle, a ping, a boom,/ a brup, a jingle, and a doom-doom-doom), and children can easily match up the various instruments with the sounds they make, from the tish of an elephants cymbals to the bwap of a monkeys trombone. The Pig on a Wig Bands music gets temporarily disrupted when a mouse with a (tiny) tuba frightens an elephant, but it isnt long before they are up, running, and attracting applause. Its good, boisterous, musical fun. Ages 48. Agent: Edite Kroll, Edite Kroll Literary. (Jan.)
