About the Book

Runaway Piggy Bank is an adventurous picture book about a piggy that gets angry at being shook up too much by the boy that owns him and runs away. The boy chases him all over the place and finally finds him by the sound of the coins inside him. They jingle ping ping poing, ping ping behind an ice cream truck. When the boy brings him home, he finds out why his piggy was mad at him. He changes his ways, saves those coins adding more besides and both are happily rewarded.
