Synopsis

A magical tale about loneliness and friendship-with a happy ending.

"Pig was lonely, but baking raised his spirits. He baked a lot."

Crow loves Pig's baking, and in exchange for delicious desserts he gives Pig special gifts, such as seeds and a caterpillar. The gifts are supposed to take away Pig's loneliness, yet no matter how carefully Pig follows Crow's instructions, they never seem to work. But then one of Crow's gifts-an egg- hatches, and magic or not, Pig has a friend at last.

Kay Chorao's gentle text and lovely illustrations create a warm, sweet story about loneliness, patience, and the magic of friendship.
