The team that brought us Four Fearless Foxes and Fosdyke and Some Smug Slug is back! Princess Pigtoria is very poor, so she proceeds to pursue Prince Proudfoot, who is looking for a perfect princess. Things are complicated by the appearance of Percy-the-Pizza-Pig, who delivers Pigtoria’s pizza. The Princess invites Prince Proudfoot’s staff to join her in polishing off the pizza, “and everyone performed the polka until they were pooped.” You’ll have to peruse the pages personally to find out the rest of the plot, but I guarantee it’ll be peppier than a pitcher of pineapple punch.
Princess Pigtoria and the Pea, by Pamela Duncan Edwards, illustrated by Henry Cole, Orchard Books, $16.99; ages 4-8
