Virginia Vincent Folsum better known as Ginger is a very elegant lady An accomplished pianist socially active and what style You are what you wear is her motto But Ginger's greates. An amusing story about Ginger an eccentric fashionable and warm hearted musical artist and her pampered pig Petunia When Ginger is called away urgently to London for a performance she coordinates with an agency to take care of Petunia and her other affairs while she is away But the agency cancels after Ginger has already left Instead of wallowing in her own misery Petunia decides to take charge After all Ginger always said You are what you wear Maybe if Petunia wears Ginger s fabulous clothes she will be like GingerThis is a fun and fanciful story though I feel a bit curmudgeony saying that I m not sure what was exactly the point about it It s still well written and an enjoyable read though compared to other Polacco books it fell short for me Still she has written so many remarkable books about some very heavy subjects perhaps she just wanted to write a silly one for a change and I can t say as I blame her And the illustrations in this one are especially humorous and winsome

Oses as Ginger and conducts business as usual with no one the wiser Hilarity ensues as Petunia becomes the toast of the town proving Ginger's motto that you really are what you wea. Although all the silliness in this picture book is simply too much for my own personal tastes young readers find the exaggerated tale of a woman and her beloved pig a hoot The story revolves around Virginia Vincent Folsum affectionately known as Ginger and how her pet pig Petunia impersonates her while she s out of town A talented pianist who now gives piano lesson to youngsters Ginger is in high demand When arrangements for Petunia s care fall apart unbeknownst to Ginger Petunia takes matters in her own hands even purchasing groceries and attending various public functions The illustrations created with pencils and markers are deliciously humorous as Petunia looks a great deal like her mentor as she dons her gowns and puts on her makeup As the story unfolds Petunia becomes increasingly distraught because her schedule precludes relaxing in a mud bath one of her favorite activities The illustrations capture her feelings perfectly and will certainly make readers smile My favorite illustration features Petunia and the governor tangoing right into the fountain of chocolate mousse Certainly this is a good title for sharing with others with its appeal only heightened by the fact that Polacco has based the story on a musician friend of hers
