About this Series

What happens when a kid meets a friendly animal who's also a bit demanding? Kid and critter travel far and wide as each idea prompts a bigger and bolder request.

A pig asking a girl for a pancake is reasonable enough, but then off they go from the kitchen to the bathtub to the backyard! A cupcake for a cat seems like no big deal, until it leads to a beachside jaunt. But no matter how big of an adventure each duo has, they always manage to end up exactly where they started!

With delightfully detailed illustrations that bring joy to the simply worded text, this series of circular tales are excellent choices for read-alouds, and also for discussing cause and effect. And as each animal's demands become sillier and more exhausting, children will enjoy each increasingly hilarious situation while adults will delight in watching the kids in the stories end up in the role of "grown-up."
