Pig and Small




Pig is BIG. Bug is... not. How will they ever be friends?

When Pig hears a strange squeaking coming from his nose, he thinks something is very wrong. But eventually he realises that the noise is just a little bug. The two decide to be friends, but their difference in size soon becomes a BIG problem -- they can't seem to find anything that they can both enjoy.

But when it comes to friendship, does size really matter?
