Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Three amusing outings feature Poppleton pig and his friends. In the first, Poppleton can't enjoy looking at the stars because the vast sky makes him dizzy, but his friend Hudson solves the problem. In the second, Poppleton decides it is time to replace his bed and he gives the poor saleslady a real workout. The final outing has Poppleton out for a sail with his friend Fillmore, but he really can't seem to relax. Early readers will find humor in these pleasant stories and should have a real sense of accomplishment when they finish them.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2This sincere and affable pig will make beginning readers giggle with three new adventures. In "The Sky," Poppleton and his pal Hudson, a mouse, stargaze in the backyard. When Hudson notices that his friend's eyes are closed, the pig explains that the vast night sky makes him dizzy. The mouse then cuts a small hole in a blanket and places it over Poppleton's face. Now he sees only a "tiny sky." In the second episode, Poppleton shops for a new bed and is assisted by an efficient feline saleslady. His elaborate testing of the prospective purchase and his requests to make sure the bed suits his habits cause the cat to become increasingly impatient but eventually result in a sale. In the final story, Poppleton is invited aboard Fillmore's new sailboat, where he is told to do nothing but sit back and relax. This proves to be impossible, particularly when the goat's sailboat capsizes, but the pig ends up having the last laugh. The chapter format, and varied settings and characters will give beginning readers relief from a seemingly endless decoding task. The light touches of humor are enhanced by the engaging art filled with expression and charm. It's more colorful and interesting than the illustrations found in many easy readers.Lisa S.
