With a little bit of luck, Piglet Bo can do anything!
Piglet Bo wants to jump over a whole field, blow down a forest, and pluck a star from the sky. And he's sure he can do all of these things and more. After completing many feats, Piglet Bo walks out onto a long pier, as far as it will take him. He looks to the deep sea, and although the pier will take him no farther, Piglet Bo will not be stopped. "I can go into the water," he says. "If I like, if I dare." And with a leap of faith, he jumps.
Piglet Bo finds friends on his journey - a whale, a pigeon, a bull - and they inspire and help him when they can, but ultimately it takes courage and daring for Piglet Bo to attempt the impossible. Piglet Bo is the bravest and most determined little piglet, with a heart set on adventure. There are no limits to what he - or even you - can do in this sweet and encouraging first book in the new series about Piglet Bo.
