About the Author:

As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, “hooked on great writing... I didn’t know about this part of me until I went to college-didn’t know I loved beautiful stories.” And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.

Since that night, Rylant hasn’t stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. “I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who don’t get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty.”

She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.
Mark Teague is an award-winning children's book author and illustrator whose books include the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling How Do Dinosaurs... series, the LaRue series, FIREHOUSE!, FUNNY FARM, and many other humorous picture books. Mark lives in New York state with his wife and their two daughters.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2. Poppleton is back. In the first story, the charming pig and his mouse friend, Hudson, travel to the shore where they find shells and eat cheese sandwiches. On the bus ride they meet a group of older ladies who teach them songs and dances and how to win at poker. In the second episode, Poppleton wrestles with the burden of dry skin. He combats it by pouring cooking oil over himself. But, alas, instead of curing the problem, it only makes him hungry for french fries. Cherry Sue, a llama, suggests honey as a cure, but honey makes him think of biscuits. Finally, Cherry Sue, good friend that she is, solves the problem with an amusing twist. In the third and final chapter, Poppleton hears on TV that eating grapefruit can increase one's lifespan. When the enthusiastic pig tastes one, though, his lips turn outside in, tears come to his eyes, and his face turns green. Hudson then supplies the answer to a long life: friends, of course. Teague's exuberant illustrations show the engaging characters enjoying life and one another. This is a wonderful, easy-to-read chapter book that will leave children laughing out loud.?Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
