An insightful look at how tall hedges make good neighbors

Can two close friends be too close? When a hedge is trimmed down between the homes of best friends Pig and Hippo, each gets more of a view of the other than they bargained for. Is that Hippo chewing on all sixteen of his toenails? Is that Pig trying to squeeze into her tutu after devouring an entire plateful of doughnuts? Fluttering flamingos! Wallowing walruses! Will their friendship ever recover from such unsettling sights?

This wise and witty tale gives a revealing look into the bounds of friendship and the value of privacy.
