Pig and Pug are very different (but not really). See how their similarities show up in this mischievous picture book that’s perfect for pet lovers.
Pig and Pug are petite and portable pets—one in a pocket, one in a purse. They are also two spunky spirits: Pug, rather pugnacious; Pig, a bit pigheaded. When these two meet, bickering, chasing, and even some mud wrestling ensue. But after some creative compromises, Pig and Pug manage to settle their differences and become friends...at least for the time being.
Lynne Berry has published numerous poems in Cricket and Ladybug magazines, and she is the author of the picture books Duck Skates, The Curious Demise of the Contrary Cat, What Floats in a Moat?, and Pig and Pug. Lynne lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
Gemma Correll is a young English illustrator, cartoonist, and generally quite small person. She and her trusty pug sidekicks, Bella and Mr. Norman Pickles, will soon be leaving the land of their births for a new life in the very large country of America. Wish them luck!

"An excellent choice for new readers...Bravo, Pig and Pug!"
– Kirkus Reviews *STARRED REVIEW
"A fun addition to most picture book collections."
– School Library Journal
“Expressive illustrations [make] for an eye-catching layout. The alliterative language and wordplay with pug and pig lend themselves to reading aloud and will appeal to children who like their humor on the slapsticky side.”
"Aside from the lip-smacking delight of reading this title aloud, the book’s tightly controlled vocabulary and frequent repetition will suit emerging readers to a t—or a p."
