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.

Why we love it~

It perfectly illustrates, friendship, cooperation and teamwork. The dear, detailed illustrations make us laugh out loud. Take the time to notice the characters reacting to each other, communicating, listening, responding, helping, sharing, thinking and ultimately joining in on the pleasure of a job well done.
