PIG

Pig didn't seem to do anything."" He just sat on his tuft of grass and dreamed of eating acorns, while the other farm animals wondered what his special job could be. But the day the barn roof catches fire (""Great Scott!"") is the day Pig is hurrying to water a newly-discovered oak sapling; when he trips, inadvertently hurls the bucket on the roof, and puts out the fire, Pig is proclaimed a hero and his task identified. Pig's stumble to glory is harmless enough, but this is just pale, imitation Steig, without enough skill in the illustration or substance in the story to carry it off.
