All rights reserved. He practices hopping, eating salad, and delivering eggs in order to convince everyone that he is serious. His friends stare at him because he doesn't look like a bunny and his sister, who is not sure her family even believes in the Easter Bunny, tells him, "you are a piglet, deal with it. Liam is heartbroken that his family and friends do not believe he can accomplish his goal until his grandparents help him to find a solution to his problem-they buy him an Easter Bunny suit on the Internet-and everyone believes in him.

Tankard's characteristic bold black lines outline his anthropomorphic pigs, and pastel-colored backgrounds reflect Liam's mood. Young children who play dress up dreaming of being someone else may enjoy the grandparents' support and Liam's transformation; however, not all identity crises can be solved by putting on a suit. Unfortunately, this venture into individuality falls flat. No redistribution permitted.

Shelves: adolescent-literature-edu When Liam the piglet decides that he wants to be the Easter Bunny, his family is not so thrilled. They support him, of course, but they're all just a bit perplexed by Liam's desire. Liam is already perfect; why on earth would he want to be anything other than his perfect little self? Liam doesn't see it this way, so he sets about delivering eggs, hopping around, and eating lettuce, all with various levels of success. And then his grandparents show up, and everything changes. The suit arrives. It is a bit too tight and a bit too scratchy and it has a loose thread.

But when he puts it on, Liam only sees one thing in the mirror: the Easter Bunny.

This is a wonderful story not only of familial support and acceptance, but also of following one's dreams. Stories that end with the character recognizing the value of the attributes the already have and setting aside foolish dreams in favor of reality have their place. But sometimes, as in this case, it's refreshing to see a character that says he wants to be one thing and actually goes and does it even if it's still only an illusion. I am not sure how I would use this in the classroom at the high school level, although I could see it fitting well as a read aloud at the younger grades.

This is an amusing story about acceptance and determination. I really admired Liam's stubborness in the face of all the doubters around him. Even his parents who kept telling him he was fine the way he was didn't understand that although they were fine with Liam as a piglet, Liam wasn't fine. The ink and digital media illustrations are filled with various shades of pink for the piglets and funny facial expressions.
