Despite their differences, Big Pig and Little Pig are great friends.When they get together, these piggy pals have nothing but fun--and so does the reader. This is a short, simple story, fully illustrated, with familiar objects and situations, repetition, rhyme, and strong links between art and text. The big pig and the little pig are hot--the sun is shining and they want to cool off. They each decide to make a hole to fill with water. Part of the humor in this story comes from the way they go about their respective tasks. Big Pig uses a little shovel to dig his hole while Little Pig has a mechanical digger. The end result seems to suit each as one sits with his big fanny in what looks like a puddle, while the other cavorts in his large swimming hole.
