Inventive fun from a new author-artist. Says a bow-tied pig to his otherwise identical piggie friends: "I will count to 100. You guys all go hide, OK?" And so, grinning, the many, many pigs scatter - under the rug, sofa, table, bed, behind the lamp, the curtains, the bushes, inside the cupboards or the car at the curb. . . where, however, the bow-tied, "it" pig obtusely (and hilariously, doesn't spot them. "What if" - he worries - "they all went home instead of hiding?" So - as we see the other pigs inquisitively emerge from their hiding places - the "it" pig brings forth a tray of goodies, conceals himself under an umbrella, and. . . emerges only when all the others have succumbed to the lure of donuts and punch. Bona fide nonsense, too, because of Dubanevich's snappy cartoon style - bulbous, buck-toothed pink pigs (on spindly legs), sharp turquoise and lemon decor, no realistic detailing. From the start, happily manic. (Kirkus Reviews)
