You're not going to find a more heartwarming dynamic duo than Pig and Mouse! Join Pig as he learns how to turn his "what if" worries from anxiety to optimism, all with the help of his loving friend Mouse.

"Readers will certainly empathize with Pig and his emotions." --Kirkus

Mouse has never had a friend quite like Pig. Pig is so incredibly kind, fabulously fun, but he also has a big secret--he's a tremendous worrier!

When Pig gets the brilliant idea to throw a party for Mouse and their friends, he can't help but think of everything that could possibly go wrong. After all, what if a lion eats all the invitations? What if nobody comes? Or worse, what if everyone comes and has an awful time?

In this adorable story, Linzie Hunter's charming, bright illustrations pair perfectly with her sweet and funny story about friendship and the endless wonder of "what if" that readers of all ages can relate to. This picture book is a great conversation starter in the home or classroom.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lighthearted doodle-adjacent digital art in a vibrant color palette lends Hunter's "porky panicker" protagonist levity in this cheerful picture book debut. Egg-shaped Pig, who wears white spectacles, is "incredibly kind, fabulously fun, and endlessly generous"--and blue-gray Mouse, as well as other animal friends, agree. "But what if Pig had a secret?" As Pig's identity as "a proper nervous Nelly" is revealed, what-if questions serve as a refrain, presenting a visualized thought spiral about the party and its chances of success. "What if a FEROCIOUS LION eats all the invitations?" one spread reads, as a smiling, round goldenrod-colored lion munches on envelopes. But then Mouse steps in, letting Pig nap, giving Pig a drink, and taking them for a walk before revealing a surprise party. A paragon of supportive friendship, with a gentle encouragement to share mental health struggles with trusted friends. Ages 4--8. (June)"
