Happy-go-lucky Pig likes to eat, dance, and host parties, but she cannot fly or swim. Her friend Goose is a natural in the air and the water, but he lacks Pig's social skills. These two are great friends nonetheless, and in these five stories for readers 5 to 8, the pals go on a picnic, and then stage a festive get-together that ends with all the animals looking up at the stars. The tales are permeated with gentle wisdom and a spirit of compassion, and Rebecca Bond illustrates them with expressive ink and watercolor images.
"[This book is] a quiet but effective reminder that an individual's appearance and skills are not the source of his or her worth." —Publisher's Weekly
