Get in the game with Hoggy and friends in this comic for beginning readers!

No one can catch Hoggy on the court. He’s the best at dribbling, shooting, and scoring. But Hoggy is not the best when it comes to helping his teammates. To them, Hoggy showboats, over-dribbles, and doesn’t pass the ball.

When Hoggy’s fed-up friends ask him to leave the game, Hoggy is faced with a big decision. Will he stay angry, or will he apologize and be a better teammate?

Ethan Long’s expressive, slapstick-style art shines in this story about teamwork, cooperation, and friendship—great for early comics and social emotion learning collections.

Comics-lovers can now share the fun with their kids, students, siblings, and younger friends who are learning to read!

Full-color digital illustrations.

K-Gr 2-When Hoggy sees his friends playing basketball, he wants to join in, but they are hesitant to include him. Hoggy is a ball hog, a showboat, and a sore loser, but he promises to try to be better. Unfortunately, he is not very successful and soon his friends send him home. After talking with another friend, Hoggy realizes that he should apologize and share so everyone can have a good time. This cute friendship story will resonate with children who have likely experienced similar scenarios many times over. The text is simple and accessible to young readers, and the panel setup of the graphic novel pages are intuitive for those just being introduced to this format. The illustrations are bright, cartoonish, and full of action which works well to support the basketball theme. VERDICT This colorful friendship story is an approachable introduction to graphic novels for early readers. A recommended purchase for most collections.-Ellen Conlin
