Boris is a warthog, and he is just like you. Boris dreams of adventures, and not just the kind you can find in your own backyard, just like you.
Boris the warthog has the heart of an explorer. I've read several titles in this series now, and love all of his funny, lighthearted adventures. Whatever Boris likes-- be it travel, Komodo dragons or running-- he needs to tell everybody about it. In this particular book, Boris' plans may not turn out the way he wanted, but you'll be glad you were along for the ride.
This early chapter book will delight transitional readers and fans of
Elephant and Piggie. Loads of repetitive words with a bit of difficult vocabulary add a fun (and doable) challenge. The pages never feel crowded with text. Word bubbles and plenty of bright, colorful pictures almost give it a graphic novel feel. At the end of the book, there's even an activity kids can try at home!
