I'm an elementary school teacher. Since this was in the Bluestem award list this year and our school librarian recommended it as a great book for a read aloud, I purchased it for my class. They really enjoyed listening to this story! It was silly and thrilling and even tugs at your heartstrings sometimes.

This book is cute! Very different story that tells the lesson of "Follow your dreams, no matter how crazy they may be" and "Be who you feel you are on the inside."

There was a bit of rude language I had to edit out during the read aloud. Otherwise, it was cute. My five year old enjoyed it as a follow-up read to Charlotte's Web.

What a pig! This book is one of the best books I have ever read. The friendship between the animals is amazing. This book also gives a lesson about never giving up on yourself and your dreams. I would recommend this book to people who are animal lovers, adventure lovers, and people who are not afraid to dream big.

Great, imaginative! Am sharing with my American young friends. They love it. Wish I could share with others Chris and I know, but PIGS do not go over well in any dress with some of our young friends!
