PRESCHOOL
(2) PS A little pig ("Oink!") settles into a bathtub until a little sheep ("Maaa?") with a toy boat comes in. Another knock brings a shower-capped cow ("Moo?"); then a life-preserver-sporting donkey ("Hee haw?") arrives. The pig looks comically more defeated with every page-turn. Told only through small-scale art and the animal and door sounds, the story uses smart pacing and energetic line work to draw out the droll humor.
