HERE A PIG, THERE A PIG
BERYL: A PIG'S TALE by Jane Simmons is a story that combines the book BABE with the TV show Lost. Beryl magically escapes becoming bacon and lands in the middle of a rigid pig settlement living in the woods by the side of the road. Beryl isn't exactly welcome, which causes some of the other pigs to strike out into the wild in search of "the other settlement." Beryl is mystified by the strange ways of the wild pigs, but makes a dear friend and finds some family along the way. This is a quick read for kids in 4th-8th grades.
