Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey

Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey gives teachers the opportunity to discuss:

Pig is the greediest Pug in the world. He is bad-tempered, rude and he never ever shares his balls, bones and chew toys. Trevor, a friendly wiener dog, is Pig’s roommate and is always trying to persuade Pig to share all the toys. But Pig says NO! 

Pig gathers all his toys and puts them into a huge pile to keep them away from Trevor. But, his greed and selfishness backfires when he climbs on top of the toys and… falls out of the window! Pig returns in a full-body cast and ‘kindly’ lets Trevor play with the toys while he recovers.
