    A true Short Story that introduces the Little Pig Dog story

    To emEW who said this is not the true book or original author, as the description explains, this is a SHORT STORY by the original authors that introduces Jake from the point of view of the family that rescued him. The other books are written from Jake's point of view. If purchased with these things in mind, it is an excellent short story to introduce the Little Pig Dog books to the parents and to be read to children.
