A sweet story of friendship and adorable farm animals. Daisy and Bently become friends when Daisy decides she would much rather be a pig than a chick. Bently teaches her the ways of the pig and they become fast friends, but as Daisy grows into a chicken, they start to grow apart. But since Daisy still cares for Bently, she finds a way to make them both happy and gain a new friend int he process. It's really nice to see a story of friends who grow apart that doesn't end sadly! The watercolor illustrations capture the whimsy of their friendship, grounded in the earthy tones of the farm and set the scene perfectly.

Meet Bently—one remarkable pig; and Daisy—the chick who loved him. Celebrate unlikely friends in this charming, funny picture book by author-illustrator Paige Keiser.

Like all pigs, Bently loves to play in the mud, eat slop . . . and do crossword puzzles! But Bently is the only pig on Sunset Farm, which means there’s no one to share his favorite things.

One day, a lonely Bently hears an oink and discovers an unexpected companion—a chick named Daisy. Soon an extraordinary friendship blossoms. But what happens when a best friend grows and changes? As young Daisy becomes like the other full-grown chickens, Bently is surprised with the most caring gift of all.

Fans of Stick & Stone and Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type will cherish this tale about the power of true friendship.
