Mortimer hopes to be a travel pig. He has lots of far-off destinations on his bucket list, like Venice and and Bali, but really wouldn't mind if he just got to go on car trips to the grocery store, or stow away in someone's backpack for a visit to the library. He wants to see it all! He's just the right amount of floppy, and you won't be able to resist rubbing his soft and fuzzy ears. He wants you to know that he's just the right color for a travel pig, since any mud puddles he might happen to fall into will blend right into his brown spots.
