Get in the game with Hoggy and friends in this comic for beginning readers!

No one can catch Hoggy on the court. He’s the best at dribbling, shooting, and scoring. But Hoggy is not the best when it comes to helping his teammates. To them, Hoggy showboats, over-dribbles, and doesn’t pass the ball. 
 
When Hoggy’s fed-up friends ask him to leave the game, Hoggy is faced with a big decision. Will he stay angry, or will he apologize and be a better teammate? 
 
Ethan Long’s expressive, slapstick-style art shines in this story about teamwork, cooperation, and friendship—great for early comics and social emotion learning collections.
 
Comics-lovers can now share the fun with their kids, students, siblings, and younger friends who are learning to read!
 
I Like to Read® Comics are perfect for kids who are challenged by or unengaged in reading, kids who love art, and the growing number of young comics fans. Filled with eye-catching art, humor, and terrific stories these comics provide unique reading experiences for growing minds.
 
I Like to Read® Comics, like their award-winning I Like to Read® counterpart, are created by celebrated artists and support reading comprehension to transform children into lifelong readers.
 
We hope that all new readers will say, “I like to read comics!”

Lesson Plan

Feature on ILiketoRead-Comics.com

“This early reader’s simple format allows beginner readers to remain focused on the text while enjoying splash pages, sound effects, and the small details that make the visual experience of a comic so much fun…. Hoggy’s story is also a well-crafted lesson in how to deliver a meaningful apology.”Kirkus Reviews
 
“This colorful friendship story is an approachable introduction to graphic novels for early readers.”—School Library Journal

“Long brings an invitingly cartoonish style to the artwork in this I Like to Read Comics book, with bright colors and dynamic motion…. Long’s play on the term ball hog makes for a comical premise, and the resolution of the friendship conflict will resonate with plenty of kids.”—Booklist
