McPhail's popular character Pig Pig appears here as a toddler, just learning his baby skills. In this board-book edition, Mama is trying to get Pig Pig to talk. She says "Mama," and he says "bluba." As she pushes his stroller through the park, he seems to be getting the idea. Mama's "duck" leads to his "quacka." But it's not until a dog comes out of nowhere to offer a lick, that his first real word comes out, a startled "Mama!" The last spread shows baby and mama having a moment, while ducks quack, dogs woof, and taxis honk in the background. The audience probably won't know the original books, but this one and its companion, Baby Pig Pig Walks, are pleasers with their simple text and amusing, warm ink-and-watercolor illustrations.
