Poppleton the pig plants a dogwood tree, gets a cold, and tries to hang wallpaper with the not-very-helpful aid of his friends.
"Rylant’s text is simple, and the layout of only one or two sentences per page plus the separate chapters, make the book easy to read. These qualities also make it a good read-aloud choice. Teagues’ warm and funny illustrations capture the spirit of Poppleton and his companions wonderfully. A great addition to any collection." — School Library Journal
