Little Pig is back in Little Pig Saves the Ship When the sea-faring pigs go a-sailing Intrepid Little Pig -- still the littlest pig in the family -- is too little to go to summer camp with his older brothers and sisters. He is left behind with Grandpa and Poppy. Little Pig and Poppy make and sail a toy ship all week, but on Saturday a gusty wind takes the ship into the current, and Little Pig has to use his newfound knot-tying skills to save the day.

A sweetly told intergenerational story about how even the littlest can make a big difference.
