Pig and Cat are pals who like to bike, swim, read, and make art together. One day Pig notices Dog, who has a very interesting kite. Pig and Dog play, and Cat feels neglected and lonely. But Pig and Dog are generous souls after all; and now Pig, Cat and Dog are pals . . . who skateboard and surf! Visually exciting art is executed with crayon and colored pencil on manila paper, in a style that is both sophisticated and childlike. Interesting details in the art add layers of storytelling.
