Title: Rufus Goes to Sea
Author: Kim T. Griswell
Summary(from amazon.com): What does a book-loving pig like Rufus do when school’s out for summer? He turns to his favorite stories for inspiration, of course! It’s the pirate life for him, matey. But Captain Wibblyshins says NO PIGS ON PIRATE SHIPS! And could his ticket to piratehood be . . . reading?
Accompanying Discussion: Discuss summer reading and the need to keep reading over the summer. Talk about summer plans and think of ways to incorporate books and reading, like visiting the library, or packing some books for a vacation!
