Description


Wake up and celebrate Little Pookie’s big day in this way-too-early board book from the bestselling Sandra Boynton.

Birthday! Birthday! Pookie can’t wait to celebrate! There’s only one problem: It’s still nighttime and everyone is asleep. With Sandra Boynton’s signature charm and piggy pizzazz, this surprising (yawn) story proves that every Little Pookie loves birthdays…even before daybreak!

Is that you, little Pookie?
It’s not even light.
You ought to be sleeping.
Look outside. It’s still night.
But it’s my BIRTHDAY!

About the Author


Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over seventy-five children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 85 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

Praise For…


“In Little Pookie's fourth adventure, the cartoon pig is so excited for its birthday that it wakes its parents twice in one night. To celebrate Little Pookie's big day, Daddy makes pig-shaped pancakes, and after Little Pookie's nap (though it's the parents who really need one) it's time for more surprises…Birthday boys and girls should relate to Pookie's elation, while adults should appreciate the commiserating wink.”
Publishers Weekly

“Boynton's ode to the parent/child bond is utterly sweet but never saccharine. Whether Little Pookie, an overall-clad anthropomorphic piglet, is fretting, dancing, or getting ready for bed, his mother is right by his side to put things right or share in his joy. Narrated by Mommy, the energetic rhyming text is reassuring, with a dash of whimsy. Marked by lively linework, endearingly expressive characters, and an appealing solidity, the art is sure to entice. Must-have additions to any board book collection.”
