Few picture books get the words and pictures balance right. This maintains a beautiful lyrical balance. Nothing scary here but a gentle meander through the life and problem solving abilities of two pigs, a bear and a moose. Thank goodness the Beavers are on-hand to build them a woodland chalet! The book provides young readers of all ages plenty to talk about and engage with. Expect lots of conversation and questions. Light humour and atmospheric "old country" type dwellings and fittings make this book a treat.

Cute story and very fun illustrations that keep ones eyes moving over the pages. Story ended too soon.

Such cute pictures but there isn't much to the story/text. Best for young kids.

This is the picture book equivalent of a warm, soothing bubble bath.

Two little pigs (no relation) build small homes next to one another then go out for a walk. When they return they find a bear has moved into one home and destroyed it and a moose has moved into the other and . . . well, same thing. Fortunately the pigs are fond of Bear and Moose but now no one has a home. That's when Moose comes up with the notion of hiring some beavers to build them a house. When a payment agreement is reached (the beavers prefer to be paid in peanut butter sandwiches) everyone works together to put up the walls and windows and roof. When it's done the four friends buy everything they'll need for the interior, purchase the sandwich fixings, pay the beavers, and then return to their brand new home for dinner, stories and bed. A beautiful end to a wondrous day.
