The Book Hog

Greg Pizzoli (Author)
Available

Description

The Book Hog loves books---the way they look, the way they feel, the way they smell--and he'll grab whatever he can find. There's only one problem: he can't read! But when a kind librarian invites him to join for storytime, this literature-loving pig discovers the treasure that books really are.
Greg Pizzoli, master of read-aloud fun and three-time Theodor Seuss Geisel Award recipient, introduces a character sure to steal kids' hearts using his signature cheerful colors and lighthearted narrative style.
"Even non-Book-Hogs should have this one. It's that good." --Jon Klassen, Caldecott Medal winner for This Is Not My Hat
"A book that readers will be eager to hog." --Booklist
