“I love this book! The spectacular Inga Moore illustrations accompany a story that will appeal to kids and grownups alike. Two pigs, a moose, and a bear decide they want a house where they can live together. They plan it and hire a group of hard-hat-wearing beavers as their contractors. We watch the house go up, and - in the best scene of all -- the beavers being paid in peanut-butter sandwiches. Delightful!”
— Deborah Johnson, Barstons Child's Play, Washington, DC

Description


It's nice to have your friends move in, but. . . . A sweet, wry tale of cooperation and camaraderie, told with pastoral artwork by Inga Moore.
One little pig has made a little den for herself in the woods, and another little pig has a small hut next door. One morning they return from a walk to find that their big friend Bear has moved into the den and an even larger Moose into the hut. CRASH With both homes collapsed, they're all in a pickle--but what if they find a way to build a house in the woods that all four of them can share? With lush, whimsically detailed illustrations and a cast of endearing, industrious (and most accommodating ) characters, Inga Moore constructs an inviting story of friendship that kids will be happy to visit awhile.
