It's yard sale time, and things are flying off the tables. But this little piggy isn't letting anybody buy his tricycle. Sure, he's too big to ride it, but that doesn't mean he doesn't love it anymore! But when the day is almost over, someone just the right size comes along, and it's clearly time to let the trike go. Luckily, it turns out the yard sale money is meant for a very exciting new purchase - a big-boy bike!

Susan Middleton Elya's trademark mix of Spanish vocabulary and clever verse and Elisabeth Schlossberg's vibrant illustrations come together in a funny, tender tale of saying good-bye to things you've outgrown.
