Albert & Lila, text: Rafik Schami, illustrations: Els Cools & Oliver Streich, 1999, North-South Books Inc.

All the pigs in the farmyard are pink except Albert, and all the hens lay eggs except Lila. They are two lonely outcasts, until they meet and makes friends. The other animals shake their heads over this odd couple, but their friendship will make the farm a safer and happier place for everyone.
