        June 8, 2015
        Lobel dresses 26 pink pigs as soldiers, athletes, troubadours, and scamps as they help to celebrate the letters of the alphabet. Setting the action against bucolic hilly landscapes, Lobel introduces each pig with brief phrases that feature alliterative names and verbs: “Imogen Pig imitated an I,” she writes as a tall, skinny pig stands straight as a rail beside a tall, skinny i, the pig’s balloon echoing the lower-case letter’s dot. Lobel also sneaks in a tiny lesson in botany, tucking images of mushrooms, nectarines, onions, and other flora into the corners of each image. A couple weaker entries (“Zeke Pig zzz’d on a Z”) detract only slightly from the charms of these playful, cavorting pigs. Ages 3–7.

        July 1, 2024
        In a welcome reissue of an alphabet book first published in 2015, twenty-six "playful pigs" wake up and explore a field of colorful, freestanding letters. The entire alphabet, in both upper and lowercase, runs along the top and bottom borders as each pig interacts with a single letter. "Abigail Pig admired an A. Billy Pig balanced on a B." By the time Yolanda yawns and Zeke zzzs, the moon has risen and it's time to go home. A playful (and humorous and painlessly instructive) book for young children learning their ABCs, with engaging gouache and pencil illustrations in Lobel's recognizable style. Martha V. Parravano
