Wild Boars Cook

TITLE: Wild Boars Cook
AUTHOR: Meg Rosoff
ILLUSTRATOR: Sophie Blackall
PUBLISHER: Henry Holt and Company

These four stinky boars, Boris, Morris, Horace, and Doris, are hungry. Doris finds a recipe for the four of them to fix. This silly book is appropriate for primary aged children. I also believe it could be used in the classroom for a lesson on action verbs because many vivid verbs are used throughout the story.

My son and I enjoyed this book. It was appealing to me because the animal characters were unusual compared to your normal children's picture book characters.
