Summary, etc.:
Meet Baloney! He's a pig. This book is about him. And also Peanut, his best friend. There's Bizz, too, of course. And Krabbit. He'd rather not be here, but what can you do? Join Baloney and his friends in their first-ever graphic novel chapter book.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 March #2
    Baloney is—if you couldn't guess—a pig, and though he's headlining this book, he's happy to make room for a few friends, including the empathic Peanut (horse), the sensible Bizz (bee), and the grumpy Krabbit (scowling rabbit). Through multiple stories and mini-comics, they tackle magic shows, swimming, stealing cookies, courage, and the cure for sadness (friendship, of course) with a wild exuberance that will draw young readers right in. The breathlessness of the stories is given form in brightly colored, big-eyed characters, who are always either moving or emoting and who exude clear, accessible personalities. Pizzoli has managed to bring his picture-book energy into comics form with a zing, and he's done one better by composing pages of large panels with just one or two word balloons each, making this the rare comic that serves as a fun and easy read-aloud. A sure bet for Elephant and Piggie fans who are ready for the next step up or want to make the move to comics. Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
