9780060258566: Emmett's Pig (An I Can Read Book)

Emmett really wanted a pig -- not a stuffed pig, or a glass pig, or a picture of a pig. He wanted a real pig. His parents explained that a boy couldn't keep a pig in a city apartment. But as Emmett's birthday drew near, he felt maybe he would get the pig of his dreams.

First published as An I Can Read Book in 1959, Mary Stolz's warm story is presented here in picture-book format with Garth Williams's illustrations fully colorized by renowned artist Rosemary Wells.

About the Author:

Mary Stolz published her first book for young people in 1950 with Ursula Nordstrom and never looked back. Since then, she has written more than sixty books, been published in nearly thirty languages, and received two Newbery Honors (for Belling the Tiger and The Noonday Friends). The Bully of Barkham Street is the sequel to A Dog on Barkham Street (also available from HarperTrophy). Ms. Stolz lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida.



Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family "live again in these illustrations."



Rosemary Wells is the creator of many unforgettable children's book characters, including Max and Ruby, McDuff, and Yoko, each of whom stars in their own book series. She is also the author of perennial favorites about universal childhood experiences, such as Noisy Nora and Read To Your Bunny. Rosemary Wells lives in upstate New York.
