Little Oink, the latest by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace is too cute! I love the storyline: Little Oink enjoys being neat and clean. His parents want him to make a mess since that's what pigs do. He half-heartedly takes part in messing things up, and once that is done he is allowed to go and play. What does Little Oink choose as his game? House! And he is able to clean things up to his heart's content. The colorful illustrations against a white backdrop are eye-catching and this third "Little" (the first two are Little Pea and Little Hoot) book is just as adorable as the first two.
