Sleeping with Pigs. (That’s actually the title of a Jay McInerney novella.)

Sandra Boynton’s books are usually gold, but every once in a while a little extra magic happens. I can never quite put my finger on what it is that makes Book A work better than Book B, but like the man said, I know it when I see it. Night-Night, Little Pookie­ is it. The last two pages of this book are exactly the kind of magic Boynton weaves in her best moments. Good stuff indeed. ****
