The Book Hog by Greg Pizzoli
Published 3/26/19

The Book Hog loves books-the way they look, the way they feel, the way they smell-and he'll grab whatever he can find. There's only one problem: he can't read!  

 “The Book Hog hogs books, but he does not truly enjoy them until he meets a librarian. I liked the funny pictures.”

—Evie, age 8

Recommended for ages 4 and up.


It’s Me (Catwad #1) by Jim Benton 
Published 3/26/19

Meet Catwad! He’s blue and a bit of a grouch, and his best friend is a cat named Blurmp, who can see the bright side of anything.

 “It was great. I loved it because it was funny. I read it in one day, but I loved it so much I read it two more times. It’s for ages 6 and up. PS, the drawings were great.”

—Maura, age 9

Recommended for ages 6 and up.
