Get That Pig Some Pants!

Poppleton the Pig is a beloved character in our house.  If you aren’t familiar with the books by Cynthia Rylant, they are about the adventures of Poppleton, a good natured pig, and his friends.  The stories are great to read to little ones and include great illustrations by Mark Teague and now that our house has a burgeoning reader, they are just right for early readers. 

 The things that kids notice is always interesting to observe.  Recently, it was noticed by Detective Little Man and Inspector Mommy, that Poppleton appears, in most cases, to be missing pants.  Now, this isn’t cause for great concern and in no way should deter you from these great books.  It’s just a bit curious is all.  Cherry Sue the Llama gets full outfits, as does Fillmore the Goat.  Hudson the Mouse, he’s a well dressed chap.  Why not Poppleton?  He is the star of the show after all and he’s running around half dressed!

 We have found one instance of Poppleton with some pants, but we’ll leave that for you and your detective squad to figure out.  In almost all cases, Poppleton is pantless.  Turns out it is a fun game with a great series of books.  Kind of like finding the mouse in Goodnight Moon (one of my all-time favorite books and one of my most memorable reading games trying to find that mouse on each page).
