Publisher's summary

Originally published in hardcover in 1972, A Day No Pigs Would Die was one of the first young adult books, along with titles like The Outsiders and The Chocolate War. In it, author Robert Newton Peck weaves a story ofa Vermont boyhood that is part fiction, part memoir. The result is a moving coming-of-age story that still resonates with teens today.

"Reading this book is like sipping hot cider in front of a crackling potbellied stove. Every page is suffused with wit and charm and glowing with warmth." ( Newsweek)
"A lovely book. . . . Honest, moving, homely in the warm and simple sense of the word. . . . It is small, accepting and loving and it succeeds perfectly." ( Boston Globe)
"You'll find yourself caught up in the novel's emotion from the very opening scene. . . . Love suffuses every page." ( The New York Times)
