When you first met the wild boars, they were bad-tempered, smelly and rude. Now they are back and are bad-tempered, smelly, rude and hungry. Uh-oh! They are cooking up a storm but it's sure to be revolting - whatever you do, don't go in the kitchen!

Starred Review. PreSchool-K—The four bossy, selfish, stinky boars are back, cooking up a Massive Pudding to satisfy their enormous hunger. Doris finds a recipe in the book she is eating and the others gleefully help her make it. When they stir it up and it doesn't look big enough to satisfy, they improvise, throwing in some of their favorite things (like a squid). When the pudding is baked, "do you think Boris and Morris and Horace and Doris sat with their hands folded and their napkins in their laps?" Not a chance! After finishing it off in 10 seconds flat, the boars are hungry again, but Doris saves the day—she finds a Massive Cookie recipe. These wonderful hijinks with the endearing boars are pictured in wildly imaginative illustrations, including endpapers that look like boar hair. Libraries should not miss out on this fun title, which is sure to be a popular choice for a food or manners-themed storytime.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
