Summary

It's a perfect day for a pignic!

A blue sky. A shady tree. A bright kite. And a full picnic basket. Four little pigs and their parents head outside to enjoy a beautiful day. With a little help from some new (and unexpected) friends, they climb trees, fly kites, and enjoy a delicious picnic. Even a sudden rain shower can't ruin their fun. Because rain means . . . MUD! Hooray!

The award-winning and New York Times-bestselling Matt Phelan has created a timeless, must-have picture book for the youngest reader. Expressive watercolors; a simple, repetitive text; and gentle, satisfying twists will delight fans of Tad Hills's Duck & Goose and Anna Dewdney's Llama Llama books.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A pig family of seven decides that blue sky, sunshine, and fresh air are ideal for an outing and pignic. Tree climbing, with the help of a tortoise, produces shouts of Hooray! from the smiling piggies. Next, kite flying from the hilltop presents challenges. First: no wind. Second: a big, blue, growling wolf! But Hooray! the friendly wolf huffs and puffs to send the red kite flying high. Children will love following the littlest baby pig on every page, as he picks flowers and blows dandelion seeds everywhere, happy in his own world. Pretzels, pies, pickles, and plums provide the pignic feast. When dark clouds come, the swine huddle in misery until the rain causes sloppy mud puddles, and the wallowing porkers shout a joyful Hooray! Phelan creates artistic magic with warm watercolors with a pastel palette of soft blues and pinks. Generous white space surrounds each frame. Designs in spreads and panels move the story forward dramatically to illustrate that it was a perfect day for a pignic.--Gepson, Lolly Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "What's the difference between a picnic and a pignic, aside from the latter's predominance of porcine participants? With the simplest of texts and lighthearted, luminous watercolors, Phelan (What Are You Waiting For?) lets readers find parallels between their own outdoor festivities and those of his characters. Both bring out the best in everyone-the episodic structure features a handful of "uh-oh" moments, which are neatly and cheerfully resolved (a blue wolf who seems intent on eating the piglets has a change of heart and uses his huffing and puffing to help them fly a kite). The pigs wait out a sudden rainstorm in a tight, soaked huddle-a meteorologically and emotionally evocative watercolor, rendered in stormy streaks of brown and gray-and perk up when they realize that they're left with a family-size mud puddle. "What a perfect day for a pignic!" concludes Phelan, as the happily muddied pigs head home. More than a few readers will wish that their own picnics could end in a similarly messy manner, and even more will adore the easygoing exuberance of Phelan's story. Ages 4-8.
