9780141500386: Meet Wild Boars

Meet Wild Boars! Or maybe you better not. After all, they are dirty and smelly, bad-tempered and rude. They might try to fool you, but don’t worry, you won't believe them. There’s no such thing as a nice wild boar. Hmmm.
     This insufferable gang of boars will mess up your house and set a very bad example indeed. If you are foolish enough to fall in love with them, they will break your heart (and most of your furniture). So don’t say we didn’t warn you!

About the Author:

Meg Rosoff is the author of the award-winning novels How I Live Now (winner of the Printz Award) and Just in Case (winner of the Carnegie Medal). She lives in London, England. Sophie Blackall has illustrated many books for children including Summer Is Summer of which Booklist praised as “lovely” in a starred review. The recipient of the Ezra Jack Keats Award, Sophie lives in a Brooklyn, New York. Their new book, Wild Boars Cook, will be available Fall 2008 from Henry Holt.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* PreS-Gr. 2. Rosoff, winner of the 2005 Michael L. Printz Award for her YA novel How I Live Now (see The Booklist Interview, p.1289), does a 180 in this picture book about dirty, stinky, mean boars. Yet there is a thread between the two books. Both are bitingly funny and deeply satisfying--each on its own level, of course. Morris, Boris, Horace, and Doris don't like others, and don't want others to like them. Consequently, being polite to Boris results in a tusk in the butt. If you try to help Horace with his mittens, he'll make a nasty smell and snort with laughter. Doris may be the worst case, though--the stinkiest, ugliest, bossiest boar of all. If the boars say they'll be nice when they visit your home, don't believe them. They'll do everything from soaking in your toilet to cutting the string off your puppets. Doris will eat your stuffed animals. So, everyone agrees that there is no such thing as a nice wild boar, but--as the final picture shows--you may run into one that is sweet ("though chances are that you won't"), and then you will be amazed. Blackall's roll-on-the-ground-in-laughter illustrations are incisively rendered in ink and gouache. There's not a bad habit, predilection, or odor that isn't described or drawn, and the boars' sly reactions to the havoc they cause are priceless. Let's hope for more from this disgustingly delightful group. Wild, they may be. Bores, they are not. Ilene Cooper
