Piggy is a runt so he is raised by Mr. and Mrs. Todd. Mrs. Todd teaches Pig how to make her pancake recipe. Fox is starving at home because there are too many mouths to feed so he sets out on his own. Pig finds him in the hen house and invites him to the house for pancakes. Pig and Fox decide to open a pancake restaurant which is a huge success.

The illustrations are very colorful and detailed.

This is actually a chapter book, and a long one at that. Asher (4 years) really got into it. We read it over a couple of days. Dexter (2 years) just didn't have the attention span to deal with it.

A piggy and a fox go into business with a pancake restaurant. They have successes and failures.

Nice illustrations.
I read this one to my boy several times. It's got easy chapter breaks for bedtime (no cliff hangers), is a gentle storyline with a sense of redemption and generosity and has delightful illustrations on each page. plus, it makes you want to eat some pancakes.

It was good because of al the things he went through when he was in the pancake parlor and he could juggle fruits and vegetables.
