SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Pig the Pug is about a dog named Pig. Pig is selfish and greedy and does not like to share. Whenever Trevor, the other dog in the house, suggested that Pig share his toys, Pig would yell at him. Pig would say that he never ever will share his toys and that they are all his. One day, Pig loses his mind when Trevor suggests he share his toys. Pig gathers all of his toys into a pile, and stands on top them of yelling down at Trevor. He tells Trevor that now Trevor will never have any toys and all the toys belong to him. Unfortunately, the pile of toys wobbles and Pig falls out the window. He ends up hurting his entire body and being in a full-body cast. Now that he has the cast, he can’t stop Trevor from playing with the toys. Pig learns that it would have been a lot less painful if he had just shared his toys to begin with.
