It's tough for a pig who doesn't want to get dirty, apparently. Cute pictures, adequate text.

A tale about a pig who unlike his family, likes to stay clean! Otis is lonely because of this until one day he meets a frog who dislikes mud and admires cleanliness just as much as Otis does! From that day on, the two play together everywhere! (except the mud!) It's okay to be different even if that means you are not the most popular or well-liked. Be yourself! ( )

Being a pig, Otis is supposed to love mud. His family loves mud, his peers love mud, but for some reason, he can't stand it. Otis' negative feelings towards mud aileniates him from his family and classmates. He doesn't have any real friends until one day, he meets someone who also dislikes mud. ( )

Otis is a pig who lives in a messy home with his family. Otis is not an ordinary pig becuase he does not like to get dirty like the rest of his pig family. He does not think he will ever like mud which often leaves him feeling lonely. Otis meets a little frog who doesn't like mud either. Otis and the little frog become friends, staying far away from the mud. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0152046046, Paperback)

Have you ever felt like the only neat pig in a messy pig family? Meet Otis--he's the one who keeps score on the sidelines or counts buttercups while his brothers and sisters romp in the swamps. Staying pig-pink and mud-free isn't easy, however--particularly since it keeps him from playing mud games with his peers. One day, Otis's sterile stance is challenged when he encounters a frog, crying softly because he lost his favorite ball in a mud puddle. Is it possible that the swamp-dwelling amphibian despises mud as much as Otis? In an impressive display of cross-species teamwork, they manage to rescue the ball without getting dirty--and instantly become best, mud-free friends. Janie Bynum's fun, cartoonish illustrations (also seen in the buoyant Altoona Baboona) add life and humor to this "birds of feather flock together" tale with a happy ending. Kids will be comforted to know that they're bound to find someone, sometime, who understands. (Preschool to age 6) --Karin Snelson
