The irresistible Wibbly Pig has 10 beautiful balloons. Of course, everyone else wants one! One by one, kind Wibbly Pig lets Scruffy Pig, Tiny Pig, Pig Ears, the Pig Twins and even some pigs he doesn’t really know have one.

Join the irresistible Wibbly Pig in this brilliantly original new story - the perfect introduction to counting for young children. Wibbly Pig has ten balloons but not for very long! As he gives them away, he holds on tightly to his favourite teddy bear balloon. But then Big Pig's shouting sister comes along...
