When Pigs Fly
Sylvia is upset when Martin's friend Julian starts to tell an "Explorer Pig" story about Sylvia's favorite new piglet, Explorer Pig. She insists to Mrs. Brown that only she can tell those stories. Mrs. Brown, who writes poetry, lets her in on a secret: stories sometimes enjoy hearing how other people might tell them. This is difficult at first for Sylvia to accept, but soon she realizes what fun it can be to share a story.
