9781416909354: Will You Read to Me?

When you are little and you've learned to read, and you've learned to write a poem all by yourself, you'd like someone big to put his arm around you and say, "Wow! Wonderful! You are terrific!"

Hamlet's pig family is more interested in supper than poetry. Sadly, he wanders off into the night woods with his book and his poems.

And there Hamlet finds something powerfully surprising. Something good and grand and terrific.

From Booklist:

Hamlet's companions in the pigsty jeer at him for keeping clean and reading books; even his family does not want to read to him or hear what he writes. But when he reads his poems aloud to the "twin" he sees in the pond in the moonlight, the other animals hear him and ask for more. The pun on the little pig's name works without the Shakespeare reference (he calls his twin "Eggs"), so it will reach preschoolers. Kids will enjoy the uproarious pigsty scenes, in which everyone yells "Supper!" and shoves in the mud hole. But Cazet's simple poetry and soft-toned watercolor-and-colored-pencil spreads also show the beauty of the quiet night in the woods near the water ("Black leaves drifted in the fading sky, / and shadows crept along the edge of the pond") and the farm community in solitude. This is not only a celebration of reading but also a moving story about not fitting in, even at home. Hazel Rochman
