Join Steven Kellogg as he shares his appreciation for the enduring gift of story and how it enriches our lives, as well as the arts of writing and illustrating, which open the gates to the world of stories and the magic they can generate.

Little Pig is too little to go to summer camp with his older brothers and sisters, so he is left behind with Grandpa and Poppy. Little Pig and Poppy make and sail a toy ship all week, but when a gusty wind takes the ship into the current, Little Pig has to use his newfound knot-tying skills to save the day. Join author/illustrator David Hyde Costello for a sweetly told intergenerational story about how even the littlest can make a big difference.
