Poppleton Forever

Poppleton Forever. Cynthia Rylant. Illustrated by Mark Teague. 1998. 56 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Poppleton planted a new little tree in his yard.

Premise/plot: Poppleton Forever is an early chapter book with three stories. In the first story, Poppleton is puzzled by how to take care of his tree. What does it NEED? Each of his friends have a suggestion, but not all suggestions are of equal value! In the second story, Poppleton has a cold. His llama friend, Cherry Sue, tries her best to help. But are her solutions worth the trouble?! In the third story, Poppleton decides to hang some wallpaper. Which of his friends should help?!?!

My thoughts: I enjoyed this collection of stories starring Poppleton and friends. I did. But my absolute favorite story was the third one, "Wallpaper." It was a HOOT. If you enjoy funny stories, it really is a must read.
