What if, Pig?

What if, Pig?

There has never been a friend as kind, fun, and generous as Pig, but he is also a “a Tremendous Worrier, a Porky Panicker, a Proper Nervous Nelly.” Mouse and the many others who feel lucky to count Pig among their friends just want to help. The comic poses and vibrant colors add much-needed levity to this important story about fear, anxiety, and friendship. Young readers will learn that being afraid is a common, temporary feeling, and that they can talk to others about it.
