Description

Granny Gomez's baby pig, Jigsaw, is the perfect roommate. He eats watermelon and watches cooking shows with her-he even does puzzles. But Jigsaw grows up-and out-quickly. Soon he's too big to get up Granny's back steps. It seems the only thing to do is build Jigsaw a barn. But once Jigsaw moves in, the two miss each other like crazy! Surely Granny and Jigsaw can find a solution, if they just put the pieces together. . . .

Playful language, subtle repetition, and Scott Magoon's signature watercolor art make this funny story of friendship a book that kids will want read aloud again and again.
