In three adorable new stories, Poppleton the pig gets help from his friends when his tree begins to wilt, when he catches a cold, and later when he decides to wallpaper his house.
The Poppleton books are an excellent way to help children learn to read. Using simple language and humorous, everyday experiences, Poppleton's fun adventures can be enjoyed by a beginning reader or read aloud to a younger child.
The first is a bit of nonsense involving geese flying south; Poppleton invites them in for cookies, but chatting and serving so many geese exhausts him so that he can only utter gibberish when he drops by Cherry Sue's, and succumbs to a nap. When Poppleton seeks a new winter coat, Zacko the ferret haberdasher insults the pig for his rotundity. Cherry Sue, reminding Poppleton that Zacko is a ferret, after all, with a radically different perspective on big and small, gives her friend a catalog for big and tall pigs. Lastly, Cherry Sue saves Poppleton's bacon at the Lion's Club pancake breakfast.

It was good they could do that ... meant they were known in town. The girl made poems about those who knew her: grown-ups such as Mr. Lafon, who was too timid to drive a car but brave enough to walk wearing a net mask among a thousand bees. Or Major, a collie dog; Mrs. Todd, who kept a pet monkey at her hardware store; or quiet Mr. Dill, who left Beaver three years before anyone noticed. And kids: Ronnie from next door, who played trombone, Randy who played Tarzan. Jo and Sue and Roger and Steve and Jimmy--boyfriends and girlfriends--growing together, and up, and away."
