Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're spreading a little pre book birthday BUZZ about a NEW Picture Book COMING SOON via Penguin Random House. It's the sequel to a squee-tastic release from last year, and stars the perfectly petite and precious porcine...PIGLETTE! This time, she's out to find the PERFECT gift for someone very dear, and what ensues is nothing short of a bake-tastic disaster...but little does she suspect that the very one she's trying to impress will have a far different take on the matter. Ladies and gents, today's title in the spotlight...
Viking Books for Young Readers
Release Date: 05/25/21
This delightful story brings us the ever adorable and determined Piglette out to make Madame Paradee's upcoming birthday extra special. She wants to find the PERECT way to make her day, and with some inspiration from the local bakery, she knows just what to do. She practices, she perfects, she tries to narrow down the flavors and confections from which she can choose in order to make the PERFECT SURPRISE. In the end, it's a towering mountain of sweetness that captures the eye and makes the mouth water, but unforeseen circumstances threaten to turn the fab dessert of the decade on its head! When Piglette's rapture turns to crestfallen sadness, Madame Paradee offers some pearls of wisdom that will echo with readers young and young at heart.
For those of a certain age, you may have heard of the K.I.S.S. method of approaching unknown situations. Well, that certainly applies here and little Piglette might have learned it a harder way than necessary, but the kindness shown by Madame Paradee combined with the delight of the guests over her wonderful concoction were enough to help her turn that frown upside down. It's a great reminder that the best things in life aren't necessarily perfect, but they are perfect for us. It's always the thought that counts and the fact that Piglette took the time to create such a masterpiece for Madame was what truly thrilled here not its size, mass, or composition.
The final results...a sweet treat destined for wee little readers to want to read again and again, and with the lovely illustrations coupled with the messages from the heart, you can't go wrong!
