Michael wants a pet pig, but he doesn’t realize how much work and trouble his pig will cause!

Early one spring, a litter of pigs was born, and Michael decided he wanted one. Through the beautiful pictures in A Little Pig we can see how Michael put Lucy in a basket to take her home, but how she soon tipped it over. As time went on, Michael learned a lot about pigs from Lucy, and enjoyed spending time with her. Then his friends came over for a picnic—and Lucy discovered the open picnic basket! What happened to their picnic? And how did Lucy behave at the pet show? This book has lovely pictures, and simple text. A favorite for all children who love animals!
