Roland the pig plays the lute and sings so sweetly that his friends never have enough of listening to him. He has bigger dreams, though, so he decides to take his show on the road and share his music with the world. He has a hard time finding an audience and is lonely at first, but then a fox named Sebastian appears and offers to take him to perform before the King. Little does Roland know, Sebastian actually plans on eating him. Just as Sebastian starts to lower Roland over a firepit to roast him and all seems lost, the King appears to save the day, and both Sebastian and Roland get the ending they deserve.
Roland the Minstrel Pig is a classic picture book by Shrek creator William Steig.
