Hoggy Went-A-Courtin'



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!
