What's in the Egg, Little Pip?

Karma Wilson, illus. by Jane Chapman, S&S/McElderry, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4169-4204-7
Little Pip, in her third outing, feels snubbed due to the "large, white oval" at her mother's feet. Pip commiserates with her friend, Merry, whose family is also expecting a chick. But when Chapman's acrylic landscape is slashed with sleet, Pip helps keep the egg warm, and on a sunny day when her brother cracks through the egg, Pip names him Sam. The displacement issues addressed are typical, but translate well to this tight-knit penguin community; readers awaiting a similar arrival will relate to Pip's mixed emotions. Ages 3–7. (Dec.)
