,In honor of this very special day, I would like to introduce you to PEDDLES! I was drawn first to the cover art (I mean, just look at that cutie!), but then I peeked inside and was hooked.
AUTHOR-ILLUSTRATOR: Elizabeth Rose Stanton
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers/2016
OPENING LINES: Peddles was just a pig. He lived on a farm with the other pigs, doing all the usual pig things: eating and sleeping and oinking and rooting and wallowing and . . . . But Peddles thought about the usual pig things differently.
I am a sucker for a character who isn’t afraid to stand out, despite what others might think, and for a character who dreams big. This describes Peddles perfectly. He has his setbacks, of course, but in the end he makes his dreams come true and wins over his friends to boot (you’ll understand my terrible joke if you read it). Pick up this book and Peddles will win you over too!
