Kindergarten-Grade 2-Determined not to return home empty-handed, three bumbling 'Men of Science' steal a wild pig from Cobtown in 1845, intending to stuff and display him in the Ploomajiggy Museum of Animal History. With the help of Fliberty Jibbert and Lucky Hart, the 10-year-old narrator, Oinkey is rescued in the nick of time. The story is preceded by a gratuitous one-page introduction in which a present-day girl and her grandmother retrieve an ancestor's diaries from an attic trunk. Many readers will find this slight story cluttered and overly precious. Busy endpapers are covered with the front pages of the Cobtown Observer and the Ploomajiggy Trumpet and the lengthy text looks like hand-printed journal entries. Scattered illustrations of the different kinds of leaves found in Cobtown further convolute the story. There isn't much plot here, and what little there is does not involve readers. There's a lot to look at, but nothing to remember.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
