An adventurous picture book about a little boy who has a piggy bank for his coins. The piggy is upset about getting shaken up too much, and finally jumps off his shelf, skitters out the bedroom door and runs away. The boy finds him on the street when he hears piggy's coins go ping ping poing ping ping behind an ice cream truck. He brings him home and finds out why piggy is upset. Afterwards, the little boy begins saving instead of shaking out the coins and then guess what? He has a happy reward at the toy store.
