Horn Book Review

(Primary) When readers last saw Grandpa Spanielson, he had just told one of his ""famous anti-itch chicken pox stories"" to his grandpup Barney (The Octopus, rev. 1/05); the story diverted Barney from his discomfort long enough for a nap. But now he's awake, and it's time for another. This second story goes straight for slapstick, recounting the time Grandpa helped rescue Mrs. Piggerman, who was stuck in the refrigerator with her snout frozen to a box of chocolates. ""At least part of her was in the refrigerator. The front half was in the refrigerator. The big half was still in the kitchen."" Conversation balloons carry part of the plot, adding a measure of sophistication for beginning readers but also directing their attention to illustrations that mirror the action. Another challenge for readers is decoding Mrs. Piggerman's speech. Suffering from stuck-snout syndrome, she can use no initial consonants: ""I 'uk!"" she screams. ""'ELP! 'ELP!"" By story's end, big red dots still cover Barney, indicating that this series isn't over, even when the fat pig screams. (c) Copyright 2010.
