[The Fog Comes on Little Pig Feet is] fast-paced, adequately written entertainment…. Although the characters … are stereotyped and one minor character never develops as expected, Wells does successfully portray the beginnings of puberty and an adolescent's need for privacy. Rachel's obsession about getting her period, counting her public hairs … and examining her chest for signs of developing breasts are related with humor and understanding. (p. 89)
