Will You Read to Me? by Denys Cazet

Hamlet isn’t quite like all of the other pigs. He likes to read and write poems. He’s really not all that into eating and he doesn’t lay around in the mud. His mom, dad and siblings aren’t quite sure what to do with him.
Hamlet gets pretty discouraged one day when no one will listen to the poems he’s written. He ends up reading them to his reflection in the pond on the farm and it turns out that there a lot of critters who not only like his poetry, but want to hear more. This is a great book about acceptance and doing your own thing because even though not everyone will appreciate you for being you, someone will. I also love the descriptive language in this book and the beautiful illustrations.
