What’s not to love about a cute little pig who loves to read so much that he’s never made any friends? Piggy has always been so immersed in his books and the library that it is almost a disaster when he comes to the last book and realises that he is actually quite lonely.
The little cutie goes looking for something to amuse himself and spies a sweet cat reading her book. Perhaps this could be a friend? Piggy tries everything he can think of to get the little cat’s attention including some spectacular moves but nothing works. Then he figures he should try sharing the happy ending of his last book with her – and of course that works! The two become special friends who read AND play together.
The illustrations are every bit as charming as the text – as one might expect from an animator – very much in the cartoon style but with real appeal for little ones.
This is a really sweet book about forming friendships and would be perfect for little ones from around kindy age upwards.
