Synopsis

All for Me by Helen Lester

Gruntly is a hog - a ball hog, a snack hog, and a treasure hog! He doesn't share his toys with his pals and, in fact, helps himself to theirs! And when Gruntly finds out about Saturday's treasure hunt, he can't wait for the first clue so that he may be the one to find the treasure and keep it ...all for himself. From the delightful duo that created Tacky the Penguin and Hooway for Wodney Wat , Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger deliver another playful and delightfully illustrated tale about the dangers of going hog-wild and show, in the end, that sharing just might have its own rewards!

Reviews

The winning duo Lester and Munsinger have done it again. The snappy text is laugh-aloud funny and incorporates a message that the intended audience often needs to hear. -- Booklist, starred review Team Lester/Munsinger are a success because they are simple, direct and elementally charming. -- Kirkus

The message is forthright, but the delivery, as always, is subtle and nuanced, and loads of fun. -- School Library Journal
