Peppa Pig and the Family Reunion

Peppa Pig and the Family Reunion. 2019. Candlewick Press. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Peppa and George are very excited. Today the Pig family is having a reunion! Everyone in the family will be there.

Premise/plot: Peppa Pig and George are excited about the family reunion: Grandpa Pig, Granny Pig, Uncle Pig, Auntie Pig, Cousin Chloe and Baby Alexander are coming to their house for a few days. Baby Alexander is VERY SMALL and VERY LOUD. He has not said his first word yet. Will Peppa be able to teach him one before the reunion is over?

My thoughts:  I probably should be skeptical of books with no listed author or illustrator. It is also a book that is based on a popular television cartoon. But while both of those things are true, this is a picture book adaptation of one of the best episodes ever. I love, love, love, love Baby Alexander. This picture book captures the joy and silliness of the original episode.

I have personally noticed a big difference between the Peppa Pig books published by Candlewick and the Peppa Pig books published by Scholastic.
