The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City
publishes with HarperCollins Children's Books
on October 3, 2017!
In this delightful middle grade debut, a little pig in a big city leads to lots of trouble.
Josie Shilling's family is too big, their cramped city house is too small, and she feels like no one's ever on her side.
Then on Thanksgiving Day her older brother, Tom, brings home a tiny pink piglet he rescued from a farm outside the city. Her name is Hamlet. The minute Josie holds Hamlet she feels an instant connection.
But there's no room for Hamlet in the crowded Shilling household. And who ever heard of keeping a pig in the city? So it's up to Josie to find her a forever home.
This modern-day homage to Charlotte's Web is a heartwarming tale of family, belonging, and growing bigger when you've always felt small – perfect for fans of Katherine Applegate and Cammie McGovern.
