Booklist - 09/01/2018 When Jasper the pig was born, the volunteers at the farm sanctuary noticed that something was a little bit . . . different. Maybe it was the three-piece suit he sported and his preference for bookkeeping over playing in the mud. Either way, Jasper’s business sense leads him to tackle the greatest project of all time: getting himself adopted. Will Jasper’s charts, résumés, and unique marketing strategies pay off? ?Zuill pulls double duty as author and illustrator, and her vibrant colored-ink drawings pair well with the text. Somehow, she makes a suit-wearing piglet look confident and cute at the same time. The sly humor mixed with a happy ending will be best enjoyed by those who love Marla Frazee’s The Boss Baby? (2010). Young readers may be confused about the ease by which a child adopts a pig (a notoriously difficult pet) from an animal sanctuary. But in the right setting, this story about a sweet, porky entrepreneur who brokers the deal of a lifetime could lend itself well to a silly storytime. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
