What do a cat and mouse have in common? One little kitten is about to find out.
“We don’t always have to fight or prove ourselves to be big and strong. Sometimes it’s the smallest of creatures who can teach us life’s greatest lessons.”
The grey-striped tabby cuddles her tiny kitten close. “Peanut,” she says. “What if I tell you the most wonderful tale tonight? A bedtime story I think you might enjoy. This is a true story, one of an unlikely friendship, great bravery, heroes and villains.”
This is Piggy’s story…
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Within the first few pages of Piggy, readers are introduced to the world of Piggy the cat and her best friend Melvin the mouse. Narrated by a mother cat named Goober, telling the tale to her rescue kitten Peanut, the story moves from Piggy and Melvin's budding friendship because of an incident in a claw-machine to the exploration of their backyard and the interesting characters they meet. These characters include Bolivar, an angry bully of a tomcat, Rolf, an old German Shepher and retired K-9, and a fleet of rescue birds led by a robin known only as Corporal. Piggy and Melvin survive a move into a new house together and the adventures that soon follow.
The world of the cat and mouse is clearly described with use of great detail that appeals to all of the senses, and some bigger words are used to help expand a young child’s vocabulary. It is a middle grade book, but it is appropriate to read to younger children as well.

I absolutely adore this book. You will too, as an adult or reading it to a child. If you love cats this is a must read! I love the relationship between a cat and a mouse, and the dog is a wonderful character too! Karen makes you feel like you are there watching every move! Wonderful story of true friendship.
Piggy is a good book for children of any age. It's the story of a special relationship between a mouse and a cat. Two creatures who are supposed to be enemies. They help each other through good times and bad. It provides an important lesson many people need to learn.
