An unlikely pair—a pug and a pig!—realize that it’s better to be together.
Pug is a very happy pup. He has his own yard, his own bowl, and even his own cozy bed! That is, until Pig moves in and starts eating from Pug’s bowl, interrupting Pug’s routine, and, worst of all, sleeping in Pug’s bed. Will Pug and Pig ever learn to live together as friends?
This sweet and silly story about a darling duo celebrates the timeless themes of embracing change, being kind to others, and finding friends in unlikely places.
Selected for the Society Of Illustrators 2016 Original Art Show, an annual exhibit which showcases the year’s best children’s picture books.

"Gallion wisely lets the reward of selflessness speak for itself, while Wan’s (The Whale in My Swimming Pool) pert, roly-poly characters look like something lifted out of readers’ own toy boxes." – Publisher's Weekly
"The text and visuals work well together, employing understated humor. Clear, softly colored illustrations featuring the chubby title characters are appealing and accessible....This cozy story is likely to hit the spot with many preschoolers and is a great choice for beginning readers." – School Library Journal
