PreSchool-Grade 1 Children will love the perky porcine star of this cheery tale. As Mr. Pig ponders which of several bow ties to wear, he is plainly concerned about asking Miss Pig to go on a picnic with him. However, friends whom he meets along the way rearrange his plans. Mr. Fox insists on lending his tail to create a foxy look. Lion contributes his beautiful hair, and Zebra her stripes. Full of borrowed confidence, Mr. Pig knocks on Miss Pig's door. She squeals in alarm at the monster before her and threatens to call her friend Mr. Pig. Without a word, our hero rushes off to return his finery, then hurries back to Miss Pig's house where he is welcomed with open arms. Charming watercolors expand the story, adding absurdity as each animal offers a prized possession. Funniest of all is Mr. Pig racing across the horizon, with mane and tail streaming out and the stripe coming loose on his arm, hurrying back to return his friends' belongings. Uncluttered paintings are minimal in detail, while realistically portraying the animals. Each cast of an eye or angle of a foot adds a whimsical touch. What a delightful way to say, ``You're OK just the way you are.'' Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, Neb.
