Edmund and Washable: A Tale from China Plate Farm : Cows travel in herds. Sheep arrive in flocks. Ducks and geese gather in gaggles. But at China Plate Farm, Edmund is just one single, solitary pig. It's no wonder he's delighted to discover another pink, fuzzy creature, one much like himself. His name is "Washable" -- at least, that's what it says on the label attached to this rather quiet stuffed pig.
Edmund is very pleased with his new friend until the other animals point out that Washable actually belongs to the girl child who lives up at the farm house. "Finders keepers, " Edmund says defiantly, determined to make Washable his own. It's only when Edmund spies the little girl in the orchard that night, crying over her lost toy, that he begins to have some serious doubts about his decision. With a little help from his old companion Hillary and other loyal friends, Edmund learns that friendship is about much more than pig-pinkness.
Edmund and Washable is the third tale in this fresh and gently funny series from gifted author/illustrator Chris Jackson. Beginning with Edmund and Hillary, followed by Edmund for Short, this critically appraised series chronicles the adventures of Edmund the pig. Each appealing story is wholly original, imparting a subtle and respectful message about friendship and family -- exactly right for its young audience.
