A touching and thoughtful story about a love for a pig, Hamlet, and how she brought a family closer together.
Told by the eleven-year-old daughter of how her life was enriched and pulled between a surprise on that fateful Thanksgiving Day, and a promise for New Years Day.
A semi -autobiographical story by the author, as she states that "the initial inspiration for this book was Ellie, an actual piglet that was the runt of a litter and the story of how my brother, Rich, saved her life and brought her home from college."
The author's "one of my all-time favourite books," is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White and "still gives me goose bumps that our two pig books share a publishing home."
