Pigs Can't Fly is an English original, written and illustrated by Ben Cort. This is the Chinese translated version.
A bored little Pig meets a giraffe one day. Thinking that it is no fun to be a pig, he decides to climb on a stilt, pretending to be a giraffe. He loses his balance and falls hard. Zebra tells him, "You are not a giraffe. You are just a wobbly pig on stilt." Next, Pig decides to be a zebra, by painting stripes on his own body. A brand new disaster ensues. Everytime Pig sees a new animal, he'll pretend to be it. Will Pig ever get it right? Well, in the end, Pig realises that it is most fun to be himself.
