Greedy gruntly has a lot to learn about sharing.
A book about sharing for one and all!
Gruntly is a hog—a ball hog, a snack hog, a treasure hog! He doesn’t share his toys with his pals and, in fact, helps himself to theirs! And when Gruntly finds out about Saturday’s treasure hunt, he can’t wait for the first clue so that he may be the one to find the treasure and keep it . . . all for himself. From the delightful duo that created Tacky the Penguin and Hooway for Wodney Wat, Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger deliver another playful and delightfully illustrated tale about the dangers of going hog-wild and show, in the end, that sharing just might have its own rewards!
Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger have been together through thick and thin since first publishing in 1983. They have collaborated on numerous books
Helen Lester is a full-time writer who makes her home in New York
