Mango & Bambang: The Not-A-Pig - Polly Faber, Clara Vulliamy

What happens when a tapir from the Malaysian jungle accidentally lands in the big city? The unexpected! Mango Allsorts, a multi-talented young girl, rescues the frightened creature from the black-and-white striped crosswalk where he’s camouflaged himself. Although the terrified crowd thinks he’s a mutant sewer pig, Mango takes him home for banana pancakes with syrup and whipped cream. And so begin the adventures of Mango & Bambang, the Not-a-Pig (Candlewick, $14.99). Polly Faber’s delightful story of an unusual friendship is humorous and touching, while Clara Vulliamy’s expressive black-and-white-and-purple illustrations perfectly capture each funny and surprising moment. This is not your typical tapir-in-the-big-city trope. Ages 6-9.
