He lives in New York City.From Booklist:
Ages 3-6. Rylant's simple sentences pair with endearing watercolors in this new entry in the Poppleton Pig series. This time, the stories are about sharing. Poppleton likes going to the movies by himself (he doesn't have to share his snacks), until he realizes he also doesn't have anyone to clutch during the movie's scary parts or laugh and cry with as the plot progresses. After the movie, he takes his leftover snacks to Cherry Sue's house, where he shares the popcorn and the film's highlights. In the second chapter, Poppleton and three friends make a quilt, which they decide to share, each one keeping it for one season of the year. The final chapter finds Poppleton wanting to soak in a hot bath, but going out with Cherry Sue instead. From the sight of the portly Poppleton trying to balance an oversize bucket of popcorn on his belly, to a view of him in the bath with a toy tugboat, the fanciful illustrations enhance the fun of this book for new readers. --Ellen Mandel Ellen Mandel
