If You Give a Pig a Party is the seventh book in the "If You Give A..." series of books. This time the Pig from If You Give a Pig a Pancake is back and she wants a slumber party.

Like the other books in the series, If You Give a Pig a Party follows a circular plot. Unlike some of the others, the logical leaps between steps are focused on the goal of the slumber party. For fans of the previous books the characters from them are all invited.

For any parent who has had to plan a birthday party, this book is extra funny. It captures perfectly the chaos that goes into the planning the way in which excited children jump from idea to idea regardless of feasibility or practicality.

Of the books in the series I've read, If You Give a Pig a Party and If You Give a Cat a Cupcake are my favorites. There's a new one out this year, If You Give a Bear a Brownie.
