From the Publisher:
When Pickles, a runaway circus elephant, stumbles into the life of a predictable pig named Pete, an unlikely friendship blooms as Pickles encourages Pete to go on wild adventures with her that take the daring duo to amazing places all around the world, including Niagara Falls for swan diving and the Matterhorn for a sleigh ride!
Annotation:
A quiet pig named Pete uncharacteristically goes tearing off on wild adventures with Pickles, a brassy circus elephant. Niagara Falls and the Matterhorn are part of the fun, in a vague, imaginative way. With Berkeley Breathed's stunning digital illustrations jumping off the page and a fine, spunky text.

Praise

"Breathed... writes in that giddy blend of skepticism and romanticism that have made his Pulitzer Prize-winning Bloom County comic strip a must-read--he creates not just a series of funny/tender vignettes but an emotional rollercoaster of a story, complete with a gripping life-or-death climax. Yet it's the digital artwork that's the real grabber. With nods to Hokusai and Hopper, Magritte and film noir, Breathed achieves a dreamy intensity, a sculptural heft that makes these images his most evocative and expansive to date." 8/4/2008
