You gotta love this charming story of little Pookie, who's upset for some reason. Why? Does Pookie even know? Loveable illustrations and warm story.

I read this book to both my 2 month old and my 4 year old niece, both love it. My daughter loves to see the happiness on my nieces face as we try to discover what is wrong with Pookie. When she is upset I go through the Pookie issues until she is smiling. What a wonderful, quick fun read!

Connie's review: This is, like all Boynton books, a quick, kinda silly story - in this case about a pig who is inexplicably upset. Very true to life, very short, perfect for little kids and/or quick storytimes. Not as good as the other books by this author, though.Ana's review: Pookie is sad. His mother wants to find out why. The ending is sad. My favorite part is where there are tiny green elephants. Evangeline's review: I yike it. The ending is silly.

This adorable little book shows when you don't know what has upset your child that trying to find out what happen is not easy but showing you care is. The simple and silly questions, help Pookie forget what made him upset. Little Pookie is some one my 2 year old daughter can related to. She requests this book all the time but especially when she is upset and wants a laugh to make her forget that she lost her favorite item of the day.

What a great story. Three-year-old Ty helps to finish the sentences as I read aloud. When he's acting like a crabby appleton, I just look at him and ask, "What's wrong, Little Pookie?" Then I usually ask him a few lines from the book. He ALWAYS laughs. We just bought this book as a present for his new baby sister, Zoey, who's due any week now.

This book is so cute. My daughter got it as a gift for her first birthday. She is now a little over 2 and all I have to say is go get your pookie book and she will go find it off her book shelf. She answers all the questions on the book even the silly ones and it really does help if she is upset about something. After we have finished reading she has usually calmed down and wants to keep reading. It is pretty awesome for little ones.

A great bedtime board book for toddlers. A little pig is crying and his mom is trying to find out what's wrong. She ends up making him forget by asking him silly questions. Each page is just a sentence or two. Like "Snoozers" it has words printed in red prompting the child to say his/her part. I read this book in a store when shopping for a birthday present and fell in love with it. I ended up buying it for the birthday boy and my own kids. When I saw B&N carried it I ordered more online for gifts for more friends with toddlers. So cute and inexpensive.

We just discovered this book last week at a friend's house and went right out to get it! Our two year old took to the story right away - there are great rhymes - and it fits so well with them fussing but not always knowing why. Yesterday, our son was cranky and I sort of followed the order in the book of checking what is wrong and he started to laugh and was fine. Will recommend to other friends, too!
