Overview

In a quirky, clever, and heartwarming picture book from the beloved author of Henny, Peddles the pig is on a mission to make his dreams come true with the help of his porcine pals.

Peddles is tired of being the same old pig—he wants to be different.

He wants to stop doing the usual pig things like oinking and sleeping. He’d much rather stand, climb, and dance! And Peddles finally gets his chance when he bumps into a pile of shoes and finds a pair of red boots that fits just right! But as soon as Peddles tries them on, he falls on his back and can’t get up! Until his special friends come along and show him how to make his dreams come true!

I was drawn first to the cover art (I mean, just look at that cutie!), but then I peeked inside and was hooked. I am a sucker for a character who isn’t afraid to stand out, despite what others might think and for a character who dreams big. This describes Peddles perfectly. He has his setbacks, of course, but in the end he makes his dreams come true and wins over his friends to boot (you’ll understand my terrible joke if you read it). Pick up this book and Peddles will win you over too!
