Harriet Pig is an unstoppable, unflappable force, out to right the world. In this collection of four stories, she realizes her dream to fly, helps a friend overcome a fear of heights, trains for a swim race against a boastful goose, and repays in the extreme a mouse that saves her life.

This transitional book is more challenging than an early chapter book, but still accessible to beginning readers who want to laugh as they follow Harriet's adventures. Leslie Tryon's charming black-and-white illustrations perfectly capture the lively spirit of adventure found throughout the book. Harriet's barge-ahead personality provides the laughs, as she does whatever it takes to accomplish her ends.
