Written by Sue Lowell Gallion

Illustrated by Joyce Wan

Publisher’s Synopsis: 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.

Ages 4-8 | Publisher: Beach Lane Books | September 27, 2016 | ISBN-13: 978-1481420662

  • This looks as though it is an amusing story and will help children view change in a less threatening way. Wish I lived in US to get one of these give-a ways. Good luck with your sales.
    I could offer a Picture book for those living in Canada. It is called True Friends: a Jack Miner Goose Tale
    published in 2015 by Truelight (me) Jack Miner was an early conservationist who was born in Ohio in 1855 and lived in Canada from 1868-1947 when he died. He established the jack Miner Bird sanctuary as a result of the incident that makes up part of my story.
