The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City was inspired by a childhood experience of mine, when my college-aged brother saved a runt piglet from certain death at a nearby farm and brought it home. The pig grew to a massive hog and lived in our house for six months! Here's a fun throwback video montage of *just discovered* clips of me with our pig, Ellie in 1993-1994 :)
Stay tuned for a fun blog post on HarperChildren's website with more information about the inspiration behind my debut novel, The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City, which publishes TOMORROW October 3rd! I'd love to see you photos & hear your thoughts on social media, feel free to share on the hashtag #TheUnlikelyStoryofaPigintheCity. Thanks for reading!
