Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Gruntly is a real hog, and the other animals are tired of his greediness, but when he gets mixed up on a treasure hunt and is the last to reach the prize, Gruntly begins to realize the value of kindness and sharing.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2012 March #2
    *Starred Review* Gruntly is a pig—and he is also a hog. He won't share, and if there's anything to have, he wants to have it all to himself. When he reads a notice touting a treasure hunt at the park, Gruntly is beside himself. Gold! Diamonds! For him! Gruntly is ready. The assembled animals will be given three clues, and each leads to the next. Greedily, Gruntly doesn't even listen to the first clue, which leads him to fall into the sea. He comes upon the second clue, but he skips the last word, which is why he finds himself looking under a bird's wing instead of a swing. By the time he finds the treasure (it's under a log, not a hog), his friends have already found the goods: trail mix. No gold? Well, trail mix is yummy. Gruntly locates his own snack bag, but he's gobsmacked by the realization that none of his friends had "touched it. Or taken it. Or snatched it . . . Or HOGGED it." Yes, finally, "Gruntly shared." 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. Munsinger's animal pals are as expressive as ever—just the looks on the faces of Gruntly and friends tell kids all they need to know about caring and sharing. Message accomplished—delightfully!
