If you give a pig a pancake, she’ll want some syrup to go with it. You’ll give her some of your favorite maple syrup. She’ll probably get all sticky, so she’ll want to take a bath. She’ll ask you for some bubbles. When you give her the bubbles. . .

Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond have done it again! In keeping with their bestsellers “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” and “If You Give A Moose A Muffin, ” chaos is the order of the day when an accommodating little girl tries to keep up with the whims of a busy little pig.


“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they are supposed to help you discover who you are.” – Bernice Johnson Reagan


Happiness is…a pancake covered with lashings of maple syrup, and another flooded with lemon juice and finally one with your most favourite topping
