Meet Pug. Pug is one happy pup. He has his own yard, his own bowl, and his own cozy bed. That is, until Pig moves in! Pig eats from Pug’s bowl, interrupts Pug’s work, and, worst of all, sleeps in Pug’s bed. Will Pug and Pig ever learn to live together as friends? With adorable illustrations from Joyce Wan, this sweet and silly story about a darling duo shares the timeless themes of embracing change, being kind to others, and finding friends in unlikely places.

Praise for Pug Meets Pig

Here’s the starred review from Publishers Weekly: “‘Pug is not happy,’ writes first time picture book author Gallion in her sublimely economic, emotionally resonant text, which is also simple enough to engage budding readers.”

From School Library Journal: “The age-old theme of learning to accept a newcomer will resonate with children adjusting to a new sibling or witnessing an old pet adapt to a new one. . . VERDICT: This cozy story is likely to hit the spot with many preschoolers and is a great choice for beginning readers.”

From Kirkus: “The simple, understated text with just a few words on each page will be enjoyed by younger preschoolers and will also be accessible to new readers, and the jaunty, oversized illustrations have a cheerful, straightforward appeal that suits the text.”
