Amanda Pig and the Really Hot Day

Written by Jean Van Leeuwen and illustrated by Ann Schweninger (Dial Books for Young Readers, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group)



It's too darn hot. Hot as a fried egg. Hot as toast. Hot as oatmeal. In four simple linked tales, Amanda Pig and the Really Hot Day chronicles such kid-friendly strategies as a sprinkle with a hose and lots of lemonade. Schweninger's cartoony pencil drawings, heightened with fruit-toned watercolors, combine for an accessible treat that is refreshing as a cool breeze.
