Synopsis

Getting onto the wrong school bus was the pig's first mistake. Her second was choosing to take the path through the forest. The next thing she knows, a wolf has grabbed her and thrown her into a sack, all the while singing a song about soup. Lucky for the pig, she's smart and can read. She stalls for all the time she can, but pretty soon she realizes she'll have to use the dreaded Hog-Eye stare: Hog-eye! Hog-eye! Magic stare! Make him itchy everywhere. On his nose and in his hair. Even in his underwear!

Meddaugh (Martha Calling, 1994, etc.) introduces us to a piglet heroine worthy of Mary Rayner's porcine family (Mr. and Mrs. Pig's Evening Out, 1976, etc.) in a delightful adventure, presented in cheerful watercolors and scathing parental asides.

The wolf, it seems, cannot read, and he allows the pig to list soup ingredients (among them ``Green Three-Leaf,'' aka poison ivy) from a cookbook (actually a volume titled ``EZ Car Care'').
