Reviews

It will greatly satisfy fans of Dick King-Smith and E.B. White looking for something similar . . . Engaging fantasy adventure for preteen pig pals.
--Kirkus

An upbeat and lively story.
--Publishers Weekly

There's humor as well as heart, grit as well as tenderness in the telling of this Antarctic adventure tale.
--Booklist

Loyalty, courage, and optimism are important ideas, and newcomer Kurtz brings us a rollicking story filled with all three.
--Horn Book, starred review

Told in the voice of a seasoned storyteller, this novel has chapters that will work perfectly for sharing aloud with younger children or as a read-alone for more competent readers. . . . Move over Wilbur and Babe, there's a new pig in town.
--School Library Journal, starred review
