    Small Pig

    by Arnold Lobel and Arnold Lobel

    Small Pig likes to eat, to sleep, and to run. But most of all he likes nice, soft mud. Everything is fine on the farm until the farmer's wife cleans up everything—even Small Pig's mud puddle. Then he runs away to the city—sure that since it is so dirty he will find a puddle there.
