Two very different friends learn how to enjoy each other's company in this hilarious story about finding common ground.

Pig and Bug just want to be friends. But their size difference is proving to be a problem. Pig wants to play games, but Bug is too small. Bug wants to make things for his friend, but Pig is too big!

Just as they've given up all hope for their friendship, Pig has an idea... But will it work?

Pig and Small is another hilariously quirky tale from Alex Latimer, filled with visual puns and wordplay. Latimer combines his bold visual style with an entertaining tale about finding new ways to enjoy friendship.

Praise For Pig and Small

"Latimer, whose deadpan visual comedy is always a treat, once again proves he's adept at conveying life lessons with the lightest of touches. Addressing the vicissitudes of friendship in a conversational and slyly funny voice, he reassures readers that liking someone needn't be a matter of all or nothing: a little imagination and understanding can go a long way."—Publishers Weekly

"Precise digitized pencil drawings with quirky knitted-fabric details humorously express the story's message of overcoming difference to make a friendship work."—The Horn Book Guide

"A clever but silly story of friendship despite differences. . . Readers will chuckle as these two opposites negotiate their unusual friendship. The illustrations add lots of humor; the colors are bright, and the pictures are big, which makes the book a good story time choice."—School Library Journal
