Pigs and a Blanket (Hardcover)
Pig siblings Henry and Henrietta love their green blanket. It is soft, it smells good, and it makes a great cape As much as they each love playing with the blanket, they don't love sharing it. Will ripping it in two solve all their problems? Author/illustrator James Burks has created a funny, relatable, sweet story about two pigs who, despite their individual interests pulling them in different directions, really prefer to remain side by side.

This book is one of the most page-turning, gut wrenching and downright readable books about crime, police and drug dealers I've ever read. The grit of the book practically leaves sand in your mouth, as the life of "King of Manhattan North" - dirty cop Denny Malone - goes from the top of the heap to a crash so low, it's almost beyond Hell. This is not for the faint-at-heart, nor is it without its redemption, but Winslow's superb pacing, terrific characters and realism struck a chord with this reader. I loved every minute of this unflinching look at police corruption in this hard-to-put-down book. - Maureen
