K-Gr. 2. First published in 1959, this I Can Read Book features Emmett, a city boy who longs for a real pig, which he plans to name King Emmett. The story's original illustrations were pencil drawings with washes of peach and green. In this edition, Williams' wonderful art is intact, but replacing the two light tints is a full spectrum of richer colors applied by Rosemary Wells, who uses "the exact paints Williams had available to him in the 1950s, in a palette chosen from his color work in other books." Wells' respectful approach results in a successful rejuvenation of this gentle story. Carolyn Phelan
