    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 of a Vermont boyhood that is part fiction, part memoir. The result is a moving coming-of-age story that still resonates with teens today.

    With over a dozen books now in the wildly popular Soup series, Robert Newton Peck started it all with this hilarious account of the nonstop mischief he and his best friend Soup got into as children in 1920s Vermont. You'll learn all about the time Soup taught Rob how to whack apples, only to wind up breaking a church's stained-glass window! Sure, the 2 pals have lots of fun doing things like rolling down a steep hill in barrels, but they just can't seem to stay out of trouble.
