Berkeley Breathed book Pete and Pickles was inspired by a sketch that his five year old daughter had made on a restaurant napkin. He asked his daughter Sophie about her sketch of an elephant holding a pig and putting flowers on its head.
Why was the elephant doing that?
She answered “The pig’s sad. Because he’s lonely.”
Then she leaned in and whispered, “. . . But he doesn’t know it.”
Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Berkeley Breathed offers two new irresistible characters and a heartfelt, hilarious look at the rarity of true friendship.
