Through its beautiful illustrations, this is a wonderful building story which captures all the joys of sharing. Two little pigs build themselves beautiful new homes. When away wandering in the woods, a moose and bear move in. The pigs are happy to share but their new friends are just too big for the houses! A solution is needed. Soon the four friends, helped by an army of beavers and fortified by a stack of peanut butter sandwiches, build a home that’s big enough for all. There’s much to look at in the busy illustrations while enjoying the tender and humorous story.

Synopsis

A House in the Woods by Inga Moore

Warm, rich and funny - a beautifully illustrated picture book from the prolific Inga Moore. When two Little Pigs leave their home-made huts one morning, two very large friends move in - Moose and Bear. It's very nice to have your friends stay, but not when they cause your home to collapse! The solution: build a house in the woods where all four of them can live together, little and big. With some help from the beaver builders and a lot of peanut-butter sandwiches, that's exactly what they do. This title includes full of idyllic woodland scenes and wonderfully expressive animal characters. Inga has sold over 1.5 million books for Walker Books. This is a gentle story of friendship with wry modern touches. This book is jacketed.
