Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
The placid porker with the soul of a poet is back and welcome to him. There is something sure to reassure children in the calm and steady way Poppleton deals with the everyday occurrences of life. This is the fifth "Poppleton" book and of the three stories it contains, "The Tent" stands out. Poppleton decides to spend the night outside even though all his friends laugh at him. Poppleton stays awake long after everyone else is asleep. He reads, he thinks and he pays attention. The next morning he shows his best friend, Cherry Sue, the flower that opened up while he was paying attention. Then he goes into his house and sleeps the day away in his bed. Everyone now thinks he is truly silly. "Everyone except Cherry Sue." Emphasizing the importance of just paying attention is a lovely theme for today's children who are often over-programmed and over-scheduled. This is a gentle way to note that they need quiet time, time to read, to think and to pay attention to the flowers opening, the pattern of the leaves overhead and the insects scurrying along the ground. The illustrations are endearing.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-The popular pig returns in a new series of adventures. The three short chapters revolve around familiar rites of spring: cleaning, shopping for a new bicycle, and sleeping in a tent in the backyard. Here, of course, each activity ends with the usual Poppleton twist. His attempts to clear his house of clutter bring more items in; too many choices at the bike shop overwhelm him and he decides he can walk or run about town; and after a wakeful night in the tent, he sleeps all day. The text is just right for beginning readers and the lively illustrations offer plenty of visual clues and a touch of the absurd humor that appeals to this set. An irresistible addition.-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA
