Chester is a small pig on a farm who has big dreams-dreams that do not include being dinner! When Chester sees a poster for the circus, he decides that he will learn a trick-he will balance on his nose. Once Chester manages to master this feat, off he goes in search of the circus. One he leaves the farm, all he seems to find is trouble-but there is something very special about Chester, its just a matter of time before everybody figures it out! Written and illustrated by Bill Peet, who created a menagerie of memorable animal characters during his work as an animation artist at Walt Disney and during his thirty-five year career as an author and illustrator of children's books.
