Pig and Pug by Lynne Berry, pictures by Gemma Correll

Published by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers

Summary:  Pig and Pug, being carried in a pocket and purse respectively, meet and introduce themselves.  Pug is sure Pig is really a pudgy Pug, which makes Pig mad.  A fight ensues, followed by a chase.  Finally Pug falls into a mud puddle, and Pig calls him, “Pug, the muddy pig”, which makes both animals laugh.  They return to their pocket and purse, and part friends.  Ages 3-7.

Pros:  Kids learning to read will enjoy the simple text, with lots of cartoon bubbles and tongue twisters.

Cons:  That’s the whole plot.  Really.
