After a close encounter with a smiling worm and a sad-faced fish, it's no wonder that Piggy and Dad invent a new form of fishing that's fair game for everyone!
Piggy is going fishing with Dad for the very first time, and he couldn't be more excited. But when he comes face to face with the bait—an irresistibly cute worm — tenderhearted Piggy starts thinking about the sport in a whole new way. In this warm, funny father-son tale, the popular Piggy and Dad move on from a Brand New Reader format to their first full-length picture book, one that's sure to have loyal fans hooked — and that will reel in new friends as well.
