The creator of Pepito the Brave returns with another small but determined hero, Little Pig.

It's Mother Pig's birthday, and her son has sneaked out of the pen to find a gift before she wakes up. Little Pig spies a great one-a pretty flower-but just as he is about to pluck it, a bee buzzes up and begs him not to. Little Pig cheerfully leaves the flower and searches for another gift, but each one he sees-fresh hay, shiny seeds, and even a lump of dirt-belongs to someone else in the farmyard. Little Pig's basket is empty, but his generous heart will lead him to the perfect present.

Using few words and crayon-bright colors, Scott Beck has crafted another sweet, spare picture book for preschoolers.
