About the Author

As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, “hooked on great writing… I didn’t know about this part of me until I went to college-didn’t know I loved beautiful stories.” And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.

Since that night, Rylant hasn’t stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. “I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who don’t get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty.”

She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.

Mark Teague is an award-winning children's book author and illustrator whose books include the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling How Do Dinosaurs... series, the LaRue series, FIREHOUSE!, FUNNY FARM, and many other humorous picture books. Mark lives in New York state with his wife and their two daughters.

What a great and funny beginners chapter book. It could help children open up and talk about things and maybe help them want to read and help others. A pig name Poppleton lives in the country and has many friends that teach him different ways to handle certain situations that he is going through.

Poppleton is a pig who has many friends. He gets himself into humorous situations and has problems he has to solve. This is a good introduction to reading chapter books.

There are three stories in "Poppleton": Neighbors which is about being communicating with and being honest with Cherry Sue that he doesn't always want to come over and eat meals with her, The Library which is about Poppleton's love of readings on Mondays at the Library which is his "favorite day of all" and The Pill which is about helping to hide Fillmore's pill inside "Cherry Sue's Heavenly Cake." Poppleton is lovable, funny and fun! These stories also have extensive vocabulary words including lemony, sunroom, museum, harmonica, dripping, parade, seriously and adventure.

The Poppleton books are a joy to read. This book introduces us to Poppleton, who moves from the city to a small town and meets new friends, including his neighbor Cherry Sue, a llama. The stories are funny and delightful. Highly recommend these books.

Poppleton is a delightful character. I have read several books about Poppleton. I enjoy him and his friends. He makes me laugh.

Poppleton is a great new character created by Cynthia Rylant. The stories in the series are wonderful, light-hearted, and sometimes funny. Good for discussing friendship, feelings, and doing things together. My youngest son, who is 5, likes to reinact some of things that Poppleton does. My oldest son, who is 8, loves the books too!

The Poppleton books we have originally belonged to our 9 year old, who enjoyed them for many years. Now our 2 year old daughter is in love with the books; so much so that she wants more books (and video's) for her upcoming birthday! They are short, happy adventures about a pig and his friends!
