9780140558197: Pigs Ahoy! (Picture Puffins)

Pity the passenger climbing aboard this cruise ship--for his peaceful vacation is about to be perturbed by a pack of impertinent pigs. Whether poolside or at the captain's side, the porkers turn the cruise into a catastrophe. Going where they shouldn't go, doing what they shouldn't do, the pigs have a marvelously madcap time--and so will readers. [A] very funny story with a shining cast of mischief makers destined for a special place in children's hearts. --Booklist, starred review

About the Author:

David McPhail is the acclaimed author of many popular books for children, including Fix-It; Pigs Aplenty, Pigs Galore!; and Pigs Ahoy! (all Dutton and Puffin). He is also the illustrator of Jan Waldron's Angel Pig and the Hidden Christmas and John Pig's Halloween (both Dutton). He lives in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

From Booklist:

Ages 4^-8. Kids think pigs are funny, something McPhail has been capitalizing on since his wonderful character Pig Pig was born. Pig Pig's mischievous spirit is many times multiplied in this zesty follow-up to Pigs Aplenty, Pigs Galore (1993) that's set on a sparkling cruise ship. The exuberant rhyming text is delivered with such gusto and goofiness that children will be hard-pressed not to enjoy themselves as they follow an unsuspecting vacationer heading out on a cruise ship: "I look for cabin number nine. / To my surprise, it's filled with swine. / Some are sitting on a trunk; / The rest are piled up on a bunk" (there's even one sitting on a toilet reading a book). Dark backgrounds make the rainbow of colors McPhail uses in his illustrations sparkle as the artwork gleefully depicts the raucous goings-on--from events in the crowded cabin to the dreadful table manners that are the porkers' eventual undoing. But even the obstreperous pigs' consignment to a drifting lifeboat isn't the end: there's a marvelous surprise yet to come in this joyous, very funny story, with a shining cast of mischief makers destined for a special place in children's hearts.
