The Book Hog by Greg Pizzoli

The Book Hog by Greg Pizzoli
Purchased at Barnes & Noble
The Book Hog is a book for book lovers about a book lover as well as a book about literacy and the power of libraries. Readers will delight in seeing the Book Hog enjoying books in a variety of places (including the bathroom) and acquiring books from a variety of places. Sharp eyes will notice the Book Hog reading Pizzoli's Geisel Award winner, The Watermelon Seed (which shares a palette with The Book Hog) as well as other great picture books by Pizzoli and friends as well as classics like Amos & Boris by William Steig and The Three Robbers by Tomi Ungerer in the window of Wilbur's (Independently Owned & Operated) Books. Don't miss the spider and web in the apartment window above the storefront! And - twist! - the Book Hog can't read! Happily for the Book Hog, he discovers this curious place called a library and a magnificent librarian called Miss Olive who inspires him not only to share his stacks of books but to also learn how to read!
