The Book Hog
First sentence: The Book Hog loved books. And he had quite a few. He loved the way they smelled, and the way the pages felt in his hooves. He especially liked the ones with pictures.
Premise/plot: The Book Hog loves, loves, loves books. That means he loves to read, right? Maybe. Maybe not. Could the Book Hog have a secret?! If he does--and he does--this one may just have an oh-so-satisfying ending.
My thoughts: I loved this one. The Book Hog has a secret: though he loves books and stories he doesn't know how to read. But with a little help and some time he may just learn how to read. He may love books even more than before....
