Martin WaddellOld Goat, Turkey, and Small Pig...three loveable characters about to set out on a little adventure. As with all young ones, Little Pig is curious about everything, and when the chance arises to try something new, he doesn't hesitate to jump right in. On this particular day, they discover a small red boat that Little Pig simply must investigate. One thing leads to another and before long, these three unlikely companions are floating along the high seas (okay, it's a lake...but they are small animals...), fishing for whales, and enjoying a day well spent. When Little Pig decides he wants a turn at rowing, the happy elderly pair hand off the tiller and turn in for a short nap. But wait...what's this? Yawning seems to be catchy whenever you see someone do it and thus with his friends asleep, Little Pig's eyes begin to droop. Will he be able to keep their boat trip on track and guide them safely to shore? It's an awful lot for an adult to shoulder, let alone a "little pig"..... but this is no ordinary piggy, and his companions are no ordinary friends.
