Wild Boars Cook
The boars are back, but watch out, because this time they're not only bossy, selfish, and stinky, they're hungry too! Written by award-winning author Meg Rosoff and illustrated Sophie Blackall.
“The four bossy, selfish, stinky boars are back, cooking up a Massive Pudding to satisfy their enormous hunger. The endearing boars are pictured in wildly imaginative illustrations, including endpapers that look like boar hair. Libraries should not miss out on this fun title, which is sure to be a popular choice for a food or manners-themed storytime. Starred Review.”

“Those hellish, smelly wild boars, Horace, Boris, Morris, and Doris, return, and they are starving. Starving, I tell you! The only thing that can satisfy is a Massive Pudding. Messy, sticky, gooey, and chewy, it contains everything from bananas to squid. The boars bake, then devour. Alas, an hour later, they’re hungry once more. As in the previous book, Meet Wild Boars (2003), Rosoff’s tongue-in-cheek text and the full-throttle hilarity of Blackall’s illustrations are a perfect match. A fine, funny read-aloud.”
