Poppleton the pig knows how to make the most of a season's offerings. In three short, charming chapters, Poppleton deals with fallen icicles, makes a bust of his llama friend's head, and enjoys a very happy surprise birthday party. Young readers will giggle at the changing expressions on the characters' faces as they carry on their misadventures and comedies of errors.
The eighth title in Cynthia Rylant and Mark Teague's popular Poppleton series (Poppleton in Spring, Poppleton Has Fun, etc.) will be received with open arms by the many fans of the portly porker. An excellent way for kids to move into early chapter books, the series features simple language, funny, easy to follow vignettes, and appealing watercolor illustrations of Poppleton and his motley crew of friends (Patrick the finch, Cherry Sue the llama, Hudson the mouse... you get the picture). (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-Pink and portly, this personable pig makes his eighth appearance for beginner readers. Poppleton's fans will need no urging to join in his concern over fallen icicles, his exacting venture into the art of sculpture, and the joys of a surprise birthday party catered by his loving friends, while children meeting him for the first time will likely scamper to the library to find the earlier titles. Teague's sunny illustrations enhance Rylant's cheery text, and youngsters can only sigh with satisfaction when Poppleton makes no birthday wish because "He had everything already." A delightful choice.

I started reading Poppleton to my 3 year old and she is now 4 and can read the easy words herself. It is also great at helping children transition from one story picture books to illustrated chapter books (and hopefully onto regular chapter books).
Our favorite story in this one is The Bust. My daughter has read that one over and over and even insists to act it out. I love Poppleton because the stories are gentle. They are funny while not being cruel. Poppleton and his friends can be sarcastic and frustrated and experience all types of emotions without having Rylant simplify it or wash over it. While the prose is simple enough for children, the relationships and situations involved make for entertaining stories for all ages.
In "The Bust," the reader learns that every winter, Poppleton gives himself a project, and this winter his project is to make a bust of his neighbor's head. But he just can't remember what Cherry Sue's eyes look like . . . what her hair looks like . . . what her nose looks like. So Poppleton keeps knocking on her door, studying Cherry Sue's features, and leaving. Finally, Cherry Sue becomes exasperated enough to tweak Poppleton's nose, at which point he tells her what he's doing.
In the third story, "The Sleigh Ride," Poppleton wants to go on a sleigh ride, but it seems that every friend he invites to go with him is busy baking. The reason for all the baking becomes clear at the end of the story. Definitely Recommended.
