Pigs & Hogs

The book to be interviewed today is, “The Book Hog,” and we have him with us today.  I have to tell you working at a library myself, I’m in love with this book.  When I got to the end of the book and saw the green date card, I smiled.

“We have the Book Hog himself here to tell you about his book character.”

Book Hog

Hi everyone, I love books and that is what the author wants you to know about me. I like you too and want you to read about my big secret.  Did you know you can go to the library and check out lots of books?  I check out books at the library and you can too.

“Book Hog, I’m so glad you like books and thank you for telling everyone where they can check out books.”

“We would love for you to tell us the author of The Book Hog.”

The guy who thought me up is Greg Pizzoli and guess what?  He likes books too! He visits libraries in Philadelphia, and you can find him online at www.gregpizzoli.com

Books & Pig

By Vicky Manning

I had a pig

In a purple wig

and he could dance the jig.

I put some books

In my sacks

And took them to my folks

Together we danced the jig

With my pig in purple wig.
