Meet Little Runt Pig and Little Orphaned Swan who were the best of friends in Friendship Is by Regina Puckett. The two friends were different from each other and whenever they played together the other animals made fun of them. Little Runt Pig was small and pink, and the Little Orphaned Swan was covered in white feathers and large. Their differences never bothered them. One day while they were playing, the Red Rooster heard them laugh and asked them how they could play together. Carly Cow also came there to see why they were laughing. A few other animals were also curious as to how these two animals, who were so different from each other, could become friends. No one could understand their friendship. Little Runt Pig and Little Orphaned Swan explained to them what friendship was all about and the rest of the animals also wanted to become their friends.
