School Library Journal - 03/01/2020 K-Gr 2—Uncle Pig is over to babysit his niece and nephews. He just has one quick question for the reader—do you know anything about kids?! Kids like doing laundry and scrubbing toilets, right? What about snack time—will Limburger cheese work? As Pig stumbles through his babysitting session, he learns alongside his kids to compromise so that everyone can have a fun and safe experience. As in Muntean's Do Not Open This Book, the interactive and metafiction elements will work well for storytime and read-alouds. Illustrations are solid and playful, and the large character design against a usually negative background also make this ideal for large group sharing. Large spreads are especially enjoyable, and kids will like seeing how each little pig is getting into trouble behind their uncle's back. VERDICT A nice addition to storytimes.—Peter Blenski, Hartland Public Library, WI - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
