Things aren't looking good for Sprig, who is packed into a fast-moving truck with dozens of other pigs. He doesn't know where they're going, but his nose knows there's something better out there. So with one dramatic leap, or really more of a tumble, Sprig sets out on a pig-centered adventure that leads him to his new best friend, a girl named Rory.
Inspired by true events, this light-hearted tale introduces kids to an intelligent and inquisitive pig, who finds his way to an animal sanctuary. The book includes a bonus section called "More About Pigs", where curious listeners will learn that pigs are smart enough to play video games, enjoy sleeping in cozy pig piles, run really fast, and other amazing facts. Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig, said of the book: "May Sprig help people to see what wonderful individuals pigs truly are." Sprig the Rescue Pig is the first children's book in our series on farm animals, perfect for ages 4 to 8.
