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.
