Editorial Reviews

Seven years after Little Pookie (2011) first appeared, this popular piglet is finally celebrating Christmas. "Oh Pookie! Come look! It's beginning to snow," says a maternal-looking pig. But where did Pookie go? Past the Christmas tree, to put on a snowsuit of course. Pookie's ever cheerful mama is willing to go out too. After all, "It's a magical time to be walking with you." When she observes, "Our noses are frozen. It's time to go in," Pookie protests in typical toddler style: "But I'm not c-c-c-cold!" The next three pages highlight indoor holiday preparations—making paper garlands, baking and decorating cookies. The rhyming text mirrors the spare illustrations. A spidery type that emulates handwriting makes it clear when Pookie is speaking. Then "the doorbell is ringing. / Our family and friends have arrived for the singing." The second-to-last spread shows Pookie, mama, and six other pigs—and Boynton's requisite chicken—singing ("Con brio"), "MER-RY CHRIST-MAS! MER-RY CHRIST-MAS! AND A HAP-PY NEW YEAR!" Conveniently, this text is placed beneath the musical notation. Finally Pookie hangs a stocking and goes off to bed without any fuss, anticipating presents on Christmas morning. The small size, a predictable winter adventure, and Boynton's very toddlerlike character make this a fine stocking stuffer or an ideal Christmas Eve read to share with other little piggies.
