Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Revisit three wonderful stories from Newbery medalist Cynthia Rylant and award-winning illustrator Mark Teague — with new cover art and design!

In this easy-to-read chapter book, Poppleton the pig charms young readers with his quirky adventures and whimsical ideas! Poppleton grows an icicle garden and ends up with an icicle fence instead. He sculpts a bust of Cherry Sue without explaining his constant visits just to look at her face. And he wonders why he can't find a friend to go on a sleigh ride with. No one can go, because they're all preparing Poppleton's birthday party!

These hilarious stories feature simple language, everyday experiences, and beautiful illustrations--perfect for beginning readers!

From Our Staff:

This collection features three short stories for early readers: In "Icicles," the downfall of Poppleton's beloved icicles leads to a new friendship; In "The Bust," Poppleton's creative juices get flowing, inspiring him to take up sculpting; and in "The Sleigh Ride," he's disappointed that all of his friends stay inside to bake when he wants to go for a sleigh ride... until he finds out that they were baking in honor of his birthday! Cynthia Rylant's Poppleton in Winter is creative and fun a perfect read on a snowy day.

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.
