Synopses & Reviews
Farmer Pig is having a very busy day. He needs a helper. Charlie Cat can help. Or can he? Time after time, Charlie causes hilarious mayhem as he tries to assist with milking the cow, watering the garden and clearing the table.
While strengthening their word recognition skills, early readers will laugh at the exploits of the hapless pig and cat, and learn that everyone makes mistakes sometimes.
Farmer Pig needs a helper, so he calls on his pal Charlie Cat. There's only one problem: Charlie's more than a little clumsy. Scarry's classic illustrations add to this book's appeal.
