He calls in his pal, Charlie Cat, to help him out. But Charlie Cat is a little too clumsy for Farmer Pig.

Originally published in Richard Scarry's Best-Read-It-Yourself Book Ever, this delightful story has been rewritten specifically for Mile 2.
Farmer Pig is having a very busy day. He needs a helper. Charlie Cat can help. Or can he? Time after time, Charlie causes hilarious mayhem as he tries to assist with milking the cow, watering the garden and clearing the table.
