Product Details


Hirst does a wonderful job with setting in this cheerful tale’s screenprinted illustrations, from the flat ochre plain where Hilda lives to the crowded village of red tile roofs, blue shutters, dancing laundry lines, sun, garbage cans, yellow rose bushes, and people of all ages and ethnicities that is the baby’s playground. The message is sweet: it takes a village to raise a child, and if that village also contains a helpful pig, so much the better.
—Horn Book

A surprisingly funny and sweet story of friendship…A raucous ride. Consider for larger picture book and storytime collections that appreciate nonsensical humor and lots of action.
—School Library Journal
