This is such a cute story about being patient and making new friends. I feel for the pig with his comfortable and predictable life who, all of a sudden, has a new neighbor and friend in the intrepid duck. Told through some tongue in cheek text and illustrations inspired by aspects of comic book format, this book is entertaining for children and adults alike.
