Wish, Change, Friend, 2002 first edition, by Ian Whybrow.


Written by Ian Whybrow. Illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke. First edition, 2002. Margaret K. McElderry Books.

"Little Pig lived quietly on the edge of the woods, under a big oak tree.

"Not many small pigs like reading, but Little Pig did. He had plenty of acorns and twigs and books, and for a long time that was enough for him.

"Then, one day, he found three new words in a book."

Little Pig's adventure begins when he sets out to put the three words together: Wish, change, friend.
