Bing Finds ChutneyPaperback - 2001
The second book in the Bing and Chutney Adventures series tells how a special friendship began.
Bing is a young pig. One day she moves into a little house. In the small garden she plants flowers and bushes. Bing loves her new house with its cozy fireplace, bookshelves, and workshop. By the road Bing erects a shiny red mailbox so that she can receive letters. But when she checks the mailbox, it is empty.
Although Bing is very happy, her home is missing just one thing: friends.
Bing decides to paint pictures of all the friends she can imagine.
At 1 o'clock she paints a giraffe
At 2 o'clock she paints a cow
At 3 o'clock she paints a rooster
At 4 o'clock she paints two kangaroos
At 5 o'clock she paints a zebra
And at 6 o'clock she paints a special picture of what her best friend should look like!
Soon after, into Bing's home walks an elephant who introduces herself as Chutney -- and she looks just like the last picture Bing painted. They both know immediately that they will be best friends. Together they eat and tell stories far past bedtime, until they fall asleep together in front of the cozy fireplace. For Bing and Chutney it was the best day ever.
With a great imagination and a little creativity, Bing, an extraordinary pig, is able to make her dreams come true.
