If You Give a Pig a Pancake: 07/01/08
If You Give a Pig a Pancake is the third in series of books by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond.
The book follows a series of what-ifs from the giving a hungry pig a pancake through all the consequences of such a gift. Each one is sillier than the next. Highlights include a bubble bath, posing for silly photos and building a tree house.
When I was preparing to review Felicia Bond's solo book The Halloween Play, I read a number of reviews that commented on how much her technique has improved since that book. I'm going to break with the pack and say that I think her illustrations were just as good then as they are in these later books. My only complaint is with the pig. I know pigs are in fact hairy but he looks positively furry in this book. All those little fluffy lines are a distraction.
