An unlikely pair—a pug and a pig!—realize that it’s better to be together. 

Pug is a very happy pup. He has his own yard, his own bowl, and even his own cozy bed! That is, until Pig moves in and starts eating from Pug’s bowl, interrupting Pug’s routine, and, worst of all, sleeping in Pug’s bed. Will Pug and Pig ever learn to live together as friends? 

This sweet and silly story about a darling duo celebrates the timeless themes of embracing change, being kind to others, and finding friends in unlikely places.

An adorable story about friendship, and being kind.

Pug is having a very hard time adjusting to the change and isn't very nice to Pig. One day all that changes, because one simple act of kindness. Pug realizes that Pig isn't so different from him, and feels bad for how he's treated him. A friendships ensures, and now these two friends enjoy spending time together.

There's a wonderful message about friendship, kindness, acceptance, and learning to adapt to change. This book is great for sparking discussions about these kid friendly themes. This book also makes a wonderful read aloud. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
