Meet Poindexter, a very shy pig. He is most happy when reading to his stuffed animals or visiting Mrs. Polen, the librarian, who sometimes lets him help put books on the library shelves and push her book cart between the stacks. Then one afternoon, Poindexter’s love of reading, a how-to book, and a dirty-snouted mole hold a special surprise—the start of a wonderful friendship.

New Yorker cartoonist Mike Twohy’s first book for children is a tender story about the joys of having and being a true friend.
