about this item
Pete is a perfectly predictable, practical, uncomplicated pig. At least, he was . . . before a runaway circus elephant named Pickles stampeded into his life, needing a friend. Pickles is larger than life and overflowing with imagination. She takes Pete swandiving off Niagara Falls. (Sort of.) And sledding down the Matterhorn. (Sort of.) Pete goes along for the wild ride and actually begins to enjoy himself . . . until Pickles goes too far. And Pete tells her she must leave.
Yet sometimes the simple life isn?t all it?s cracked up to be.
Pulitzer Prize?winning cartoonist Berkeley Breathed offers two new irresistible characters and a heartfelt, hilarious look at the rarity of true friendship.
When Pickles, a runaway circus elephant, stumbles into the life of a predictable pig named Pete, an unlikely friendship blooms as Pickles encourages Pete to go on wild adventures with her that take the daring duo to amazing places all around the world, including Niagara Falls for swan diving and the Matterhorn for a sleigh ride!
