Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Porky is messy. . . morning, noon, and night. Bess is perfect in every way imaginable--from her well-appointed cupboard to the figure eights she skates at the local pond. But somehow these two unlikely friends complement one another like tea and toast. So when Porky finds himself in a pickle--he can't finish writing his poem and the secret ingredient from his favorite recipe is missing--who is there to lend a hand? Bess, of course The everyday adventures of these two very different friends will delight newly independent readers who are ready for some funny, episodic storytelling. From the Hardcover edition.

Horn Book Review

In between outings with his best friend Bess (a meticulous cat, mother of three kittens), Porky (a messy, disorganized, bachelor pig) is trying to write a special poem for Poem-Reading Day. By books end, Porky has found the perfect words to celebrate their friendship. Gently humorous and expressive pictures illustrate this odd-couple pair. Copyright 2010 of The Horn Book, Inc.
